Butter Chicken (Low FODMAP)

Butter Chicken (Low FODMAP) by Carole's Chatter
I based this Butter Chicken dish on a recipe on Fodmap Fun (thanks!).  But I did make some changes – as you know I can't help myself.
Rather than marinading the chicken overnight I only had 45 minutes.

The marinade was made up of: 

Salt and pepper
Chili powder
Cumin and coriander seeds crushed in the mortar and pestle
Olive oil
Lemon juice 

I also didn't cook the chicken and the sauce separately.  I just browned the chicken a bit in olive oil  and then added the sauce ingredients below and once the chicken is cooked you're good to go. 

Sauce ingredients
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
Small tin of coconut milk
6 cardamom pods – lightly bashed
Knob of ginger, grated
1 green chilli – chopped finely 

If I had had some fresh coriander I would have added that too. 

I served this with rice.  It actually did taste a bit like butter chicken even though no cream or butter is in it!



  1. I have done this before and it was so good!

  2. Oh wow! I loved the spices in this. I bet it was outstanding.

  3. I wish there was a way to taste a sample through the Internet....Hope someone is working on that! It has been a long time since I've seen a recipe with turmeric. And such an interesting combination of spices!

  4. Carole, I have been looking for a Butter Chicken recipe for ages. I love it!!! Anytime when I'd like to eat that I have to order. It's a shame, isn't it? But not any more, I'll go for your recipe. I'm sure it's delicious :-)

  5. My sons enjoy butter chicken, I'm going to have to try this one.

  6. this is awesome. i must make this. Daughter loves butter chicken but doesn't eat dairy, hmm a bit of a problem there. This will be great. thanks.

  7. I love Indian food, and I find that I always love the flavour of butter chicken, but after just a couple of mouthfuls I just find it too rich (and I'm a person who actually quite likes fairly rich food), so I'm loving the idea of this without the cream and butter.

  8. I've always wanted to try butter chicken. The spices and coconut milk in your version sound it smells good too!
