Chicken Masala (Butter Chicken)

It’s a famous dish in Indian cuisine. For the chicken, I used a half chicken. I removed the skin and bones before cutting it. Of course you can choose chicken thighs or chicken breast.

  1. Place chicken pieces in a bowl. Add in 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp paprika powder, 1 tsp garam masala, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 2 tsp garlic paste and 1 tsp chopped ginger. If you want it to be a little spicy, you can also add in spicy chili powder. Marinate for 15 mins.
  2. Saute marinate chicken in pan. Heat a pan. add in 1 tbsp oil. Put the chicken pieces in. Saute till chicken turn golden brown. Take the chicken out.
  3. Same pan. Add in 2 tsp extra oil. Add in 1/2 cup chopped onion. stir fry a bit.
  4. Cut in 1 tbsp butter. Sautee onion till aromatic.
  5. Add in 2 cups chopped tomato. Stir fry evenly with onion.
  6. Pour in 1 cup water. Season with salt, garam masala, paprika powder and sugar.
  7. Simmer with low heat for 15 mins.
  8. Transfer everything in pan into the blender. Blend till it becomes smooth paste.
  9. Pour the paste back into the pan. If the gravy is not thickened enough, turn to low heat and reduce it.
  10. Add the chicken in. Cut in 1 tbsp butter and add in 1 tbsp cream. Stir well. Simmer for another 10 mins.
  11. drizzle cream before serving.

It can be served with rice or prata or naan. Very nice. My husband finished the whole big plate of this chicken masala.

The Best Prata Shop So Far

I should’ve done this blog long time ago. I love roti prata. I even buy frozen prata and store in my fridge. I also tried many prata shops including hawker store or Indian restaurant. I have to say this prata shop is the best so far!

The shop is called The Roti Prata Gouse Pte, Ltd. And it’s located @  246 Upper Thomson Rd, Singapore 574370.

My husband and I have been there twice, even though it’s kind of far away from where we live. Many people came there to eat.

Here is the menu with many kinds  of prata and other dishes. And the price is quite fair.

The first time, my husband ordered bomb kaya  prata. It just blow our mind. We never know kaya can go so well with prata. I used to dislike sweet prata, but this kaya one definitely changed my mind.

I ordered roti john. It’s also very nice. But compared to the bomb kaya prata, it’s not that surprisingly good.

The second time, we went there during Chinese New Year. Because we seldom went that area, it’s a good chance for us to dine in that prata shop again.

I ordered coin prata. There were 5 of them and served with curry.

Prata was still hot and crispy. I could have more of them.

My husband ordered this egg prata.

Served with this dipping sauce.

I like my coin prata more. πŸ™‚

And don’t miss the teh tarik. My husband is a big fan. He ordered it both times.

And I like the honey lime.

If you are also a prata fan, you can go and try this prata shop one day.
