|Butter chicken curry.|
But I had this sitting in the cupboard and I was dying to try it out.
I will admit to the fact that I find curries a bit intimidating to make. And my favorite curry, butter chicken, is usually made with so much butter that it ends up bothering my stomach.
This packet made the recipe very simple. Just combine the chicken, water, butter and spice paste in a soup pot and simmer.
Yup, it was that easy.
The recipe called for 3 Tbsp of butter which would have been way to much for me so I reduced the amount by half and just added 1 1/2 Tbsp of butter.
The instructions said to turn the heat up to a boil (after 20 minutes of simmering) but I think that was just to reduce the liquid. If you like a more liquid curry you can just skip that step.

Since this was not a dish the dogs could eat (too much spice), I made them a snack.

And if you need some cooling off after all those spicy curry pictures, here is a shot of a dish my friend made which was wonderfully light and refreshing after eating all that chili.

And I will leave you with some cute shots of my friends dog:
