Butter Chicken

As salam semua

Baru-baru ni saya dan anak-anak berkunjung ke rumah rakan. Tertarik dengan hidangan makan malam yang disediakan saya terus mencuba salah satu juadah yang disediakan. Alhamdulillah sedap dan anak-anak suka.

Butter Chicken -

chicken breast, cut into thin cubes
garlic, minced
ginger, minced
curry leaves
red chilli, sliced
evaporated milk
shao hsing wine / cooking rice wine
light soy sauce
oyster sauce
corn / potato starch

Method :
1. in a bowl, mix chicken pieces with a bit of soy sauce. leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 15 minutes
2. heat up some oil for deep frying
3. coat the marinated chicken pieces with corn / potato starch
4. when the oil is hot enough, deep fry the chicken pieces until golden
5. drain the chicken pieces of excess oil on absorbent kitchen towels. set aside
6. in a wok / pan, melt some butter with a bit of cooking oil (prevents the butter from getting burnt too fast)
7. saute minced garlic and ginger until fragrant
8. add in curry leaves and chilli slices and saute for a few seconds
9. turn the heat to low, add in evaporated milk, some water, a slosh of shao hsing wine, oyster sauce and stir well
10. when the sauce starts to thicken, turn the heat off and add in chicken pieces. mix well. the sauce will continue to thicken as you toss and turn the chicken pieces in it
11. serve, and enjoy
