Butter Chicken

This beautiful, nourishing Butter Chicken is the perfect remedy for a cold winter's night! Flavoured with warming herbs and spices, this can be popped into a slow cooker so it is ready when you get home from work.

Served with a dollop of Kultured Wellness Coconut Yoghurt, you get an extra boost of gut-loving goodness.


  • 2 Tbsp butter or ghee
  • 500g organic chicken thigh, cut into cubes
  • 1 small - medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 5 cardamom pods, crushed
  • ½ Tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½-1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • ¹∕³ cup Kultured Wellness Coconut Yoghurt
  • ½ cup filtered water
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ½ cup chopped coriander & extra to garnish with
  • 2-4 zucchini, spiralised into noodles

Suggested Serving:
Veggie purée or cooked & cooled rice or greens & cultured veggies and Kultured Wellness Coconut Yoghurt to drizzle on top.


  1. Mix all the butter chicken ingredients (except cauliflower) together in a bowl and evenly combine.
  2. Marinate for at least 4 hours to develop the flavours. Overnight is best to allow the flavours to develop.
  3. Add the marinated chicken to a saucepan and gently cook on low for 2 hours.
  4. Add the cauliflower and cook for another 40 minutes to an hour.
  5. Add a little bit more water if needed. The chicken should be soft and tender and the cauliflower cooked through.
  6. Taste the curry and adjust if needed. If it’s ready, remove from the heat, but keep the lid on to keep it warm.
  7. Add the zoodles to a saucepan and add ½-1 Tbsp butter and a splash of water to quickly soften them. Once they are ready, strain the liquid off and scoop the zoodles into bowls.
  8. Stir through some fresh coriander leaves into the curry then scoop it on top of the zoodles.
  9. Serve straightaway with cultured veggies (we used Jordan’s cabbage and carrot kim-chi recipe) and also enjoy a glass of Kultured Wellness Coconut Kefir with the meal.
