Ingredients

  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Classic Butter Chicken
  • 250g skinless chicken breast/thigh (or boneless pork, seafood, duck, paneer, mushrooms)
  • 1 tsp vegetable or olive oil

Method

  1. Cut meats, fish, or vegetables into generous pieces.
  2. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan, add spice from the whole spice sachet and cook for 20 seconds.
  3. Add the meat, prawns or vegetables and brown lightly before adding the base sauce. Simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the main sauce (and fish if using) and simmer for another 3-5 minutes or until the meat or other is cooked through.

*If you don’t like whole spices, powder these in a pestle and mortar and add them in at the end of step 3, or remove them with a spoon before serving.
