Father's Day Meal Idea

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. With Father's Day coming up this weekend, I thought it would be a fun idea to share an idea of a meal that you can make for Father's Day.

Butter Chicken
This is one of my favourite Indian recipes. I like it because it doesn't need too many spices, you can do without the chilli and the chicken and gravy just melt in your mouth. 

Chicken (you can opt for boneless chicken)
2 tablespoons of yoghurt
Red chilli powder to taste (optional)
Crushed ginger and garlic
Garam masala
Tumeric powder
Butter/Cooking Oil
Cashew nuts
  1. Marinate the chicken: Place the chicken in a bowl, add yoghurt, red chilli powder, crushed ginger and garlic, garam masala and salt.
  2. Make the tomato gravy: In a pan, heat the oil. Saute onions until translucent. Add tomatoes and sprinkle some salt. Cook until they turn soft and mushy. Add red chilli powder, garam masala and cashew nuts. Fry until the raw smell of the masala goes away. Cool this and blend with three-quarter cup of water. Blend to a smooth puree.
  3. Put everything together: Heat some butter or oil in a pan. Add crushed ginger and garlic and fry until the raw smell goes off. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Add the marinated chicken. On a medium flame, fry until the chicken turns pale and white in colour. Make sure the yoghurt masala dries up. Add the puree. You can also add more red chilli powder and garam masala. Add water but be sure you end up with a thick gravy. Simmer until it is cooked.
Serve with rice or chapati.

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers.
