Keto butter chicken

Butter chicken is considered one of the most loved chicken dishes that traces its path back to the northern regions of India. A low-carb butter chicken is as creamy and buttery as the original butter chicken and is bound to make you crave for more with its silky smooth texture and rich flavour.

Ingredients –

1 pound chicken breast (or) boneless chicken thigh

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tbsp butter

3 garlic cloves, diced

1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, chopped

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp red chilli powder

½ tsp garam masala powder

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp cumin powder

  1. Cut the chicken into chunks as per your desire.
  2. Coat the chicken with ground ginger, turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, cinnamon, salt, and cumin powder. Set aside.
  3. Heat a pan on medium flame and melt butter in it.
