Balti Butter Chicken - Low Fat

 This is seriously one if the best things I've ever made. I needed a recipe that was quick and didn't have a lot of ingredients. Indian food is always so tasty but definitely heavy on the fat scale. I usually order this dish or the Chicken Korma when I go out, but I don't know if I will ever pay again for this at a restaurant! Making this low-fat was easy, and although I thought it would effect the flavor, I really didn't seem to notice. The original recipe called for 6 TB of Butter but I used 1 TB of Butter and 1 TB of EVOO. I hope you guys like this.. I also made rice but the actually chicken part only took me 15 minutes, start to finish.

Low-Fat Balti Butter Chicken 
  • 1 C Plain non-fat Yogurt
  • 1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
    (I used 1/4 C Pasta Sauce because that's all I had... Still delicious!)
  • 1/2 C Plain Almond Milk
  • 1/2 C Raisins
  • 1/2 Almond Meal
  • 1½ tsp Chilli powder
  • ¼ tsp Ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Garam masala (if you don't have it, make your own here)
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamon 
  • 1 tsp Ginger pulp
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 TB Butter + 1 TB EVOO
  • 1 Chicken Breast, cubed
  1. In a bowl combine all ingredients except Tomatoes, Chicken, Butter, and EVOO
    Stir until combined
  2. Add Chicken to mixture
  3. Heat a frypan with Butter and EVOO on Med-High
  4. Add Mixture from bowl, add tomatoes
  5. Stir-fry for 8-12 minutes, (until chicken is done) 
  6. If you want the sauce a little thinner, you can add a splash more Almond Milk

    That's seriously it. It has so many spices that if you don't have one, just add more of another (I liked adding extra Cardamon! I added Raisins to mine but I bet you could sub that for mango and it would still be delicious!  


  1. How much almond meal do you use?

    1. 1/2 C. Thanks for commenting, I didn't see that the measurement was missing. I'll fix right away!
