Talking food one day, someone mentioned to me that they had a craving for Butter Chicken, an Indian dish that I had never tried. Instantly curious, I searched the web for a simple version of the recipe. None of them mentioned grilling, but all wanted it to be baked in a covered dish. I have to be different so instantly I was thinking of ways to make this delicious recipe on the grill. I came up with this and it was very delicious.
I was worried about finding all of the spices and the cheesecloth. No need to fret at all. If you go to a larger grocery store, one that has a fresh market and deli, you should be able to find the cheesecloth with the tea-towels. As for the spices, I found the ones I needed almost all side by side! As long as you have access to a store with a bulk section or a bulk dry goods store, you should be fine. The curry paste was in the International/Asian section. If you can’t find paste, you can substitute curry powder, and make it into a paste with water.
This was incredibly delicious. I was very skeptical about trying something from the realm of Indian cuisine, but the ingredients and challenge intrigued me. In the end, I was very happy with the flavours and looking forward to trying another dish. I even had people who love Indian food saying that this recipe was exactly how it should taste. This was a thrilling adventure in cooking.
