Silver Medal 2017: Savoury Sauces and Pastes.

This sauce is as smooth as butter and its texture is the reason for its name – ‘makhan’ is the Hindi word for butter. The sauce is used to make the famous dish ‘BUTTER CHICKEN’ flavoured with roasted fenugreek leaves and sweet tomato sauce. It is best finished with ground cashews and cream. This sauce is also ideally suited to creating rich, creamy vegetarian dishes with a mix of steamed or sautéed vegetables, tofu or mushroom. It can be the secret inspiration to your own special curry.
