The easiest and tastiest butter chicken ever. This is a staple in my house and i even make it woth paneer instead of chicken sometimes. Its better than any restaurant in nyc! Tha k you for creating this recipe 🙂 I highly recommend having everything ready to go before starting. Its that fast!
This was my first instant pot dish, and it was amazing. Creamy and delicate. Perfect evening meal.
Very good! My husband and toddler loved it!
Butter chicken with no butter hmmmm…
Well, mmm mmmm; the coconut milk provides the medium to carry and meld all the spices and tomato flavours. My coconut milk wasn’t separated and I couldn’t wait so instead of adding the coconut water I added about a quarter cup of chicken stock and added all the coconut milk at the end and made a little roux to thicken the sauce. There was sauce to spare so I did some pigeon peas that had been conveniently soaking overnight. Like mashed potatoes and
So easy to make butter chicken at home now! Taste very good!
It didn’t taste like butter chicken to me, but it’s still a really delicious curry!
Not the delicious butter chicken I was hoping for. I didnt enjoy the texture and thought the flavor was lacking.
I agree with other reviewers who said this was a bit bland. Not bad, but not close to what you might get an your average Indian restaurant.
Also, this didnt seem better or easier because of the instant pot. The prep was similar to putting this in a pot, and it took about the same amount of time.
Not bland. Was awesome. Highy suggested. Will def make again
The flavor of this was really good! Really hit the spot if you’re craving Indian food. However, I didnt see the benefit of using the InstantPot. Could have made it just as easily on the stove.
I made this for dinner tonight in less than an hour and it was delicious!!!!
Just made this last night. A couple of the ingredients were hard to find (ghee, fendruk leaves) but is still tatsed SO good
Delicious flavor! Loved by the whole family. Definitely will make it again.
First butter chicken recipe I’ve tried. Loved it!
Delicious! and easy to make.
I made this last night. It was so easy!! My whole family enjoyed it. Im happy to add this as a regular dish in our household. Thank you!
Big hit with the family! Didn’t have fenugreek leaves, but flavor was still in point. Not as intense as other butter chicken recipes I’ve done but still family fave.
Amazing, easy, and delicious
I used about 75% coconut water, 7 minutes on the pressure cooker and also transferred the entire dish from the instapot to the stove to so a quick fast boil to thicken the sauce-let it cool/set for 10-15 minutes.
Very easy and very tasty.
I couldn’t find the chili powder or the Fenugeek so substituted 3 tsp of paprika and 1tsp of Cayenne pepper for the kashmeri chili and about 1/3 a cup of maple syrup for the fenugeek
Easy to make and tasted great
Very easy to make, was a little spicy hot so next cutting down on red chili powder. The family loved the flavor, very unique.
Loved this! I Caught myself making pleasure noises with every bite! Two notes: i didnt have fenugreek, so left that out. And for the Garam Masala, i didnt have any on hand so used a homemade mix recipe from my own spices on allrecipes.com.
I found it boring. I added more spices at the end to try and liven it up. On the plus side – chicken was tender.
Didn’t have ginger or fenugreek, but had ghost pepper curry and garam masala. Gave it a shot. Results were tasty, but next time will probably cut down on the ghost pepper.
Best butter chicken added to my forever list.The chicken was so tender cut it with a fork. Great balance of spices. Noticed in some reviews said it was running perhaps they never cooked it for the last 10 mins after pressure cooking that’s we mine became so thick.
The entire family loved this dish. We often order this from a local Indian restaurant. We will now always make it at home!!
Delicious meal!! I didnt have fenugreek leaves so i used a tablespoon of maple syrup, (I read that its a good substitute). I also cut out the sugar because if the sweetness in the maple syrup. My husband said it could use some kick so I added a dash of cayanne to the leftovers for him. Ill definitely be making it again.
Yummy!!! Defintely a keeper! I added cubed kabocha squash in the last 10 mins simmer and came out great. You can also use butternut squash if you like. Omitted the fuknegeek as i dont have it on hand but still great! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. Happy intant cooking!!!
This is the third recipe i have made with my instant pot and i love it, i used frozen chicken thighs and it came out a bit soupier. Cooked for 23 minutes, love it! Will make again.
Yum!! All the family loved this. Super tasty!
Tasty, but will add more chicken next time as there was a lot of sauce left over.
Delicious. Had to buy fenugreek leaves from amazon.
Im trying this soon. I read that mustard seeds/ground is a good substitute for fenugreek. Will have to see.
It was awesome! I used honey dijon mustard instead of fenugreek leaves as a substitute. The recipe works fantastic with more chicken and the same ingredients.
Is it a good idea to substitute the Ghee with butter? and to leave the fenugreek leave out completely
If that is what you have, sure. Ghee is just clarified butter and fenugreek leaves are difficult to find sometimes. You could use seed to keep the intended flavor or leave it out it is still a great dish.
Amazing & Easy. Butter instead of Ghee. So glad i did find fenugreek leaves but it smells so strong I opted to use half the recommended amount. Best compliments from family and not to strong – even though i doubled the Kashmiri and garam lol – I will adjust to my level of spicy – any excuse to make this meal again. added more chicken and this was a great “warning” because there is a lot of sauce.
I am very pleased with this recipe! I went to an Indian market in West Palm Beach Florida and gathered up all the necessary ingredients. The final product was rich and creamy without the use of cream or yogurt even! And the spicing is most authentic. Can’t wait to make it again.
