So back to the drawing board for butter chicken.
I served it with red lentil curry and roasted potatoes and cauliflower, and we ate it for days. It was still pretty good.
Funny, when I searched my very own blog for cauliflower to see if I'd posted the roasted potato/cauliflower recipe, I found a link to a crockpot butter chicken recipe, that I apparently made 2 years ago. I never repeated it, so it also must have been "meh". Ah well, the search continues. I don't know why I'm obsessed. Well, not obsessed, but - I attended an Indian wedding about 10 years ago, and they had butter chicken, and it was awesome.
In any event, the roasted cauliflower and potatoes recipes is pretty simple: chop your veggies. Start the oven at 400F. Toss with the following spice mix and oil of your choice (coconut, olive, etc.):
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne
3/4 to 1 tsp salt
