Rasoi Magic + Shan masala Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken is not on my list of favorite dishes. It is too rich , kind of sweet and not spicy for my liking.Dont get me wrong ..I like rich , I like creamy , I like sweet - but not in my non veg preparations . The rest of the family enjoy it .I happened to get a packet of Rasio magic butter paneer masala as a sample to try out from a grocery store.This is not the real butter chicken recipe , I just made it up with what I had on hand.

Ingredients :
  1. Chicken - 1/2 kg skinless bone in
  2. Shan Tandoori masala - 2 tbsp
  3. Lime Juice - 1 tbsp
  4. Onion - 2 big cut into big chunks
  5. Tomatoes - 2 cut into big pieces
  6. Rasoi Magic Paneer Butter Masala - 1 pack
  7. Milk - 1 cup
  8. whole spices - 1 tbsp (2 cloves , 3 cardamom , 10 black pepper , 1/2 inch piece cinnamon stick)
  9. kasuri Methi - 1 tbsp
  10. Oil - 4 tbsp
Wash and drain the chicken pieces and marinate it with lime juice and shan tandoori masala. Keep aside for an hour.
Heat oil in a pan and add the marinated chicken pieces and saute until chicken is almost cooked.
Remove the chicken pieces and into the remaining oil , add the whole spices and onion chumks.
Saute until onion starts to turn brown.
Add in tomato and saute until tomato gets mushy.
Turn the flame off .
transfer the sauteed onion and tomato mixture into a blender/food processor and blend until it is smooth.
Return the blended masala into the same pan in which you fried them and saute for 5 minutes.
Add in the chicken pieces and cover and cook until chicken is completely cooked.
Add the Rasoi magic masala to a glass of milk and stir well.
Add this mix to the chicken and simmer for another 5 minutes .
Sprinkle a tbsp of Kasuri methi on top and garnish with cream .
Serve with Naan or Roti.


  1. Kandittu ugran! Ritchie ethu arinjal eppol veetil ethi ennu chodichal mathi :D

  2. Shan Masala is in integral part of cooking anything Indian. At least I think it is! I love using their keema masala and korma masala when I cook chicken for my family! The taste just becomes so alluring after mixing a bit of Shan masala that it gets pretty hard to ignore it!
