Tomato Butter Chicken Curry with Moroccan Tomato Sauce
All I can say is make this recipe. If you want to have a night of Tomato Butter Chicken Curry bliss...then make this recipe. It's so good and yes I know you will be thinking but you are using your Moroccan Tomato Onion Relish and Simmer Sauce to make this? but it's Moroccan and butter chicken is Indian? Yup we know...but this recipe works and it works not only well, but incredibly well...plus Moroccan spices and Indian spices don't differ all that much...common Moroccan spices include cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, paprika, saffron, coriander, cloves and fennel. Common Indian spices include cumin, coriander, turmeric, mustard seeds, paprika, saffron, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, cloves and fenugreek. So as you can see there are a lot of overlapping spices in the mix. Also tomatoes are an essential ingredient to butter chicken so our Moroccan Tomato Sauce made with tomatoes simmered in cumin, mustard seeds, paprika, fennel seed and cinnamon make this relish/sauce a perfect addition to this butter chicken recipe.
