Butter Chicken Curry

This is one of those delicious dinners that you really don’t want to show the recipe to the people you make it for. There is no pretending that this is a healthy dinner, it is BUTTER chicken after all. It is, however, gosh darn tasty and it’s really pretty easy. You do need to be organised with the marinading before hand though, but after that it’s pretty much a one bowl wonder. Try not to let the list of ingredients intimidate. Half of them are thrown in a bowl to marinade the chicken, the other half are thrown in a pot to bubble away in.

Tip of the day: My sister-in-law wanted to make this, but didn’t have all the spices. She was over at our place anyway, so I just quickly popped one “measure” of all the needed spices in a ziplock bag for her. It gave me an idea for the future. So last night when I was making this for dinner, I kept a small ziplock bag nearby, labeled “Butter Chicken marinade spices”. As I was putting teaspoons of spices into the bowl, I put equal amounts into the bag. I’m hoping that being able to pull this pre-prepared spice bag from the pantry will make the process even quicker for next time. Fingers crossed. 🙂

We serve this with rice, nann bread and/or papadums.

Another quick tip: Spread papadums out on a dinner plate, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute, no oil needed. Done. 🙂

Mixed Berry Muffins

You know those moments when you feel like baking (or, let’s be honest, eating) something sweet, but you REALLY can’t be bothered making (and cleaning up) a mess? A one bowl wonder is the way to go.

I like these muffins because they are quick, easy and a “one bowl wonder”. They freeze well too and can be brought back to warm-and-tasty-life in a microwave without problems. So they are great to bake when you are just in the mood to do so, and then freeze for later on, say for when people are popping over and there is nothing in the house to offer them.

These muffins work great with whatever berries you have handy. I used blueberries and raspberries this time because that’s what was in the freezer. I add frozen berries to my regular shop for these moments.
