'Butter' Sauce by iceflower

Category: Dips/Spreads/Condiments

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian diet.



200 ml natural yoghurt (or soy alternative)

3 tsp ground almonds

1 tsp chilli vinigar (or chilli powder)

1/4 tsp crushed bay leaves

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp garam masala

1/4 tsp cardamon

1/2 tsp coriander

1/2 tsp ginger pulp

1/2 tsp garlic pulp

1/4 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp fenugreek

1/2 tsp tumeric

1/4 tsp white pepper

1/4 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp salt

2/3 can of tomato soup (or 400g canned tomatoes)

1 tbsp oil (or marg/spread)

2 med onions, chopped

(not used in my recipe, but if you prefer a richer sauce add another 6 tbsp of butter to the 1 tbsp of oil, and 4 tbsp of light cream for later)



Add yoghurt, almonds, dry spices, ginger, garlic, salt, tomatoes, soy sauce and lemon juice into a mixing bowl.

Lightly fry onion in oil (and the extra butter if you want it rich) in wok or skillet. Approx 5 mins.

Add liquid mixture to onions in pan, cook for another 5-10 minutes (taste to see when spices no longer taste raw).

Take off stove, allow to slightly cool. (Add cream if desired). Blend sauce to get a smooth consistency.

Reheat for serving.

Additional comments:


This is a sauce recipe for the 'butter' part in Butter Chicken (favourite Indian dish of most westerners)! It's creamy and tomatoey and spicey (and totally lacking in butter in this recipe!) but it still tastes just as good as it does in the resteraunts!

Great over vegetable koftas, chicken substitute, curried veggies and rice!
