Had to try it! With the new Thermomix, and being a member of a lot of facebook Thermie groups – this one is one of the most talked about dishes! I wasn’t a big fan of Butter Chicken.. till now! Had only tried it pre-made from the supermarket – never again I swore!
But, as I said, I had to try this most raved about meal. I now understand….
I also made Naan Bread – just plain, but it was a must! Sad part though? I did the rice in my rice cooker, and FAILED! How can you fail in a rice cooker? OMG!!
Anyway, here are the links to the recipes I used. I won’t paste them in here as they are quite lengthy. For me, this took all afternoon but others have managed it in an hour.
Oh.. I’m one of the people who can’t even begin liking coriander!
So.. in a nutshell – I gave this a 10/10! My sons did also, in fact went back for seconds! There was even enough to freeze a couple of meals for lunches! I’ll do this again, it’s a keeper, but first will try the one that comes with the Thermomix Cookbook and compare. They’re quite different.
Wondering if I should take some in for the Indian guys at work and see how ‘authentic’ it really is!
So after my rant the other day about the Thermi vs Bellini – I AM enjoying this machine! It’s very simple and user friendly, not so hard to clean (Bellini was a bit easier for some reason).
If you own a Thermomix or similar, and haven’t tried this – get on it!
