Butter Chicken (in our case Butter Shicken) or the local name in India (Murgh Makhani) is one of the most popular North Indian curries served in Indian restaurants across the UK and India.
Another curry that originates from the Northern state of India, traditionally the Butter chicken curry is made with the leftovers of Chicken Tikka, where chicken has been marinated in a tikka and tandoori marinade, cooked on a coal fire or tandoor oven. The leftovers of the chicken tikka are then cooked in a Butter curry sauce.
Now that’s the history of this dish, obviously we at Shicken applied our #theshickeneffect, marinating our Shicken pieces overnight in our vegan yogurt, tikka and tandoori spice marinade. We then cook our marinated pieces on a live flame to obtain a BBQ char to our pieces and then smother them in our butter vegan curry sauce.
With our Butter curry sauce, we start with a base of finely chopped and fried onions to which we add our unique vegan spice mix, tomatoes, cashew paste and vegan yogurt to replicate the creamy taste and flavour of a really butter curry.
The finishing touch for our Shicken Butter curry is blending our sauce to a smooth silky texture and then covering our Shicken pieces completely with Butter curry sauce.
