Butter Chicken is a creamy Indian chicken curry commonly found in Indian restaurants. It’s usually served with naan and basmati rice. Learn how to make Butter Chicken with an Instant Pot with this easy and authentic recipe.
I love Butter Chicken and it’s one of the dishes that I always order at Indian restaurants. Butter chicken is similar to Chicken Tikka Masala but they are different. As the name suggests, Butter Chicken uses butter and less spice-laden while Chicken Tikka Masala is heavier on the spices.
Both recipes call for Garam Masala, which you can buy online or at the spice aisle of food stores. This amazing spice mix gives you the iconic Indian curry flavor. Other key Butter Chicken ingredients include tomato paste, ginger and garlic.
With an Instant Pot, you can make this rich and mouthwatering chicken curry at home in a jiffy. First, you prepare the butter chicken ingredients by marinating the chicken first. Saute the chicken with butter, then add all the spices and pressure cook for 10 minutes. Add the heavy cream after pressure cooking and you will have the best homemade Butter Chicken that tastes just like Indian restaurants.
For serving, you can try my homemade naan recipe or just serve with rice, preferably Basmati Rice. The taste and aroma develop overnight so save your leftover for lunch tomorrow. You will love the flavors, enjoy!
