Chicken-less Butter Chicken

Chicken-less Butter Chicken

One of my favourite meals is an Indian Butter Chicken. From a restaurant, it’s full of cream and spices and is definitely a ‘sometimes’ food. It is also impossible to get an organic version, unless, you make it yourself.

To take the hard work out of it, you can start off with the Ozganics Butter Chicken sauce (right). It has all the flavour that you would expect from a restaurant, but not the rich cream. You could, of course, add some organic cream if you wanted to, but it’s absolutely beautiful without it.

All you need to do is to fry off some organic onion & chicken (thigh works best) and simmer in the sauce. If you’re trying to cit down on the amount of meat you eat, or you want a vegetarian meal, try the following base ingredients instead.

  • Baby Spinach
  • Chick Peas
  • Pumpkin
  • Spring Onion

You’re best to either soak and cook the chick peas yourself or ensure you’re getting them from a bpa free can (they’re hard to find). Chop up & saute the ingredients in some coconut oil and then pop the simmer sauce in. Serve with some organic rice and a dollop of organic yoghurt. Pimp the yoghurt with some grated cucumber and chopped up mint to make your own raita.

Pop left overs in to insulated food containers to take to work or  school. We recommend either the Klean Kanteen or the wider mouth Lunchbots as they have a stainless steel lid on the inside and won’t leach curry taste in to the container for your next meal. For best results, pre-heat the food jar with boiling water and then fill with your hot lunch.

You will find the butter chicken sauce, the oil & the rice in the health food section of our store.
