Step By Step Making Process Of  BUTTER CHICKEN: 

(1) In a bowl take the chicken and add the kashmiri red chilli soaked in mustard oil, lime juice, ginger-garlic paste, hung curd, salt to taste and mix all the ingredients all together nicely. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes. 

(2) Heat some water in a pan. Add the tomato chunks, sliced onion, bay leaf, green cardamom, cloves, cinnamon stick, cashew nuts, garlic cloves, ginger pieces, salt to taste, 1 teaspoon kashmiri red chilli powder, 1 teaspoon butter and give it a stir. Let it boil for a minute and let it cook for 15 minutes. 

(3) When the tomato become mushy switch off the flame and let it cool down and transfer it to a blender and blend it to a smooth paste. Then strain the paste to give it a fine texture. 

(4) Now heat some oil along with some butter in a pan. Add the chicken pieces one by one and fry the chicken from both side nicely. 

(5) When the chicken cooked nicely turn off the flame. Now place the charcoal in the pan on a bowl. Pour a one half teaspoon of ghee or oil on the charcoal and it will start smoking.Cover the pan and let the chicken smoke for about 2 minutes. That's all it takes to give the chicken a nice smoky flavour, just like you get from a tandoor oven. 

(6) Then again heat some butter along with some oil in a pan. Add 2 teaspoon of kashmiri red chilli powder and saute.

(7)  Then pour the tomato paste in it and stir. 

(8) Add salt and sugar as per your taste and cook the gravy for some minute. 

(9) Now add the fried chicken into the gravy, mix it properly and cook for 5 minutes.

 (10) Add the fresh cream and give it a stir. 

(11) Lastly, add the kashoori methi and your BUTTER CHICKEN is ready to serve.
