Butter Chicken Parcels

Butter Chicken Parcels


Like who doesn't love Butter chicken? My love for Butter Chicken made me make this filling and it is truly scrumptious! Butter Chicken is one among the most popular dishes or gravy of Indian Cuisine. The first thing that I order, be it any restaurant, is this utterly butterfly delicious butter chicken. If the butter chicken tastes great then I bet the restaurant/Eatery is top notch when it comes to cooking with flavors.

When Ramadan is here we stock up on our basic necessities and ingredients so that we can have more time to do Ibadah. Well, one such major item that every household buys and stocks up is the samosa sheets. We all stock up on samosa sheets! Don't we? And they are definitely a big savior when it comes to preparing something quick for iftar without the hassle of preparing dough and making sheets. 

I try and avoid preparing fried snacks during iftar as it definitely isn't good for the tummy. But a fried item once in a while won't hurt too!😁

Well, I am introducing you to my Creamy saucy butter chicken parcels on the occasion of reaching 3K+ followers, which is a huge deal to me! 😍 I had to share a recipe of fried snack during this Ramadan for my dear followers who are my constant supporters and motivation. ❤️


Coming back to the recipe, boneless chicken are cut into 1 - 2 cm strips and marinated in ginger garlic paste, chilli powder and salt. It is fried and set aside. The masala consists of butter, finely chopped onions, green chili, red chilli powder, ginger garlic paste, tomato paste, dried Fenugreek leaves (kasuri methi), a tablespoon of flour and milk. And garnished with chopped Coriander leaves! It's that easy.

Now if you ask me how is it creamy like I mentioned before. I wanted the ingredients to be easily accessible, hence you may use heavy cream instead of flour and milk for that creamy touch and when filling the samosa leaves into parcels I also like to add a dollop of cream for that extra creamy effect! (Cause I like anything and everything creamy) haha

Enough of the drooling session, let's get started!
