Week 1 - Day 2 - Bonus Activity Special Meals

For my bonus activity I had to find my favourite meal and find the recipe. My favourite food is butter chicken but bought from the shop. This is my favourite food because I love eating chicken and rice together. I have found a recipe of how to make easy butter chicken.

Step 1 : Place yoghurt, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, garam masala and chilli powder in a glass or ceramic dish. Add chicken. Stir to coat. Cover. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 2 : Heat oil and butter in a heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened. Add chicken mixture to pan. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until chicken just starts to change colour. Add tomato puree and stock. Cover. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and mixture has thickened slightly.

Step 3: Stir in cream. Simmer for a further 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve with steamed rice and coriander leaves.
