Quick and easy Butter Chicken, also known as a Makhani curry, originates from the Punjab in India. A winning restaurant dish where the chicken can be swapped out with roasted veggies for a delicious alternative.



500g-750g of chicken portions

20g pure butter ghee or unsalted butter

1 medium sized onion

4 cloves of garlic

2 inches of fresh ginger

generous dash of cream or natural yoghurt


Step 1

Finely chop the onion. Finely grate the garlic and ginger. Gently fry in a pan with 100g of butter ghee or unsalted butter. Keep on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes until the mixture turns translucent. Top tip: if you find the mixture sticking to the pan, add a splash of water.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine BANG!'s spices with 50ml of water. Blend into a smooth, thick paste. Pour the paste into the pan and continue on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes. This will magically turn into your curry sauce! Top tip: look out for oils emerging from the mixture and  move onto step 3.

Step 3

Add the chicken pieces and raise the heat for about 3 minutes. Keep stirring the chicken until the outside of the chicken is sealed. Add up to 200ml of hot water, lower heat and simmer until cooked. Add a generous helping of natural yoghurt or cream in the last 15 minutes of cooking. Optional extra: finish by garnishing with chopped coriander. curry recipe
