5 minute Blender Butter Chicken

A warm & nourishing family meal served in under 30 minutes, this crowd pleaser is sure to get the family wondering if you've recently been to India for cooking lessons.  With the immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory & anti-oxidant properties of fresh Turmeric root & seasonal organic vegetables all whipped up to create a blender curry sauce in 5 minutes you'll never go back to labouring away at a curry again... I use my Optimum Blender as it one of the most powerful available on the market & does the job quickly with a big 2 Litre Jug capacity to make plenty of sauce in one batch.  

You can also make this a vegetarian(free range eggs) or vegan curry meal by using organic cubed tofu, precooked or canned organic beans or lentils or organic kumara, beetroot & potato so a variety of options.  Served on a poor man's 'saffron' rice using grated Turmeric Root which has superior flavour to the dried powder or use organic or spray free cauliflower for a low carb cauli 'rice' option.
