Chicken Butter Curry and Roasted Garbanzo

Feels like in an Indian restaurant! First attempt of cooking chicken butter curry and grilled garbanzo beans for the bread’s mate (well I dont know its name but it’s exactly same texture and taste with naan and different with pita bread). Having not stock of veggies for salad, so I sauteed onion, broccoli, sliced carrot, cabbage, mushroom, and little leftover spinach. #dinner #chickencurry #chickenbuttercurry #garbanzobeans #grilledgarbanzo #garbanzo #indiancuisine #recipega

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground ginger >> me: finely mashed fresh ginger
  • 3 tsp garam masala >> me: unfortunately hadn’t bought it, replace it by adding ground clove, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, etc. any seasonings in my kitchen 😀
  • 1¾ cups tomato passata >> me: chopped fresh tomato
  • ⅓ cup cream >> me: skipped, didn’t have it
  • 1½ tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt >> me: sorry I never stocked yoghurt for cooking, so replaced it with coconut cream 😛
  • Sea salt & white pepper
  • Handful coriander leaves >> me: skipped
  • Small handful pistachios, chopped roughly >> me: garbanzo beans
  • Steamed jasmine rice and naan bread, to serve >> me: only naan instead

Preparation method

  1. Heat butter and oil in saucepan, over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook for 5 mins. Add chicken and cook for 3 mins.
  2. Add garlic, chilli powder, cumin, coriander, ginger and garam masala to saucepan. Stir to coat chicken with spices. Cook for 2 mins.
