Steve and I have become known for the Indian food we make. Let me start over. Steve and I are known for our love of Indian food. More, Steve than myself, but I’m getting there. In fact, for our second date, Steve made homemade Indian food for me (Chicken Tikka Masala) and it was fantastic. Then, for my birthday a couple of months after we started dating, he took me to a local Indian restaurant for the first time. I immediately fell in love. It was fantastic. Since then, I can’t tell you how many times we’ve shared an Indian meal together. I even planned Steve’s surprise 30th birthday party a few years ago at a favorite Indian restaurant. Additionally, we’ve converted many friends to this delicious food – and now you can fall in love too!
In this Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken, the flavors blend so well together. With the help of your slow cooker, you can make this before work and come home to a pretty fantastic dinner. The only out of the ordinary spice you will want to get will be garam masala (which is an Indian spice staple), along with cumin, turmeric and curry powder. We keep all of those on hand. You’ll also want to pick up some basmati rice because that’s the traditional rice you’ll find in the restaurants. Although this is not considered a healthy meal, it’s definitely a delicious meal that we don’t mind splurging our calories on every once in a while. The recipe makes enough to feed a crowd, or have leftovers if it’s just for your small family. Believe me, you will want leftovers!
