Enjoy this Veganized take on Butter Chicken. I use tofu instead and it’s packed with flavor and is quite easy to make!
I absolutely love Indian food! It’s one of my favorite cuisines that I definitely don’t have enough of.
A very popular Indian dish is Butter Chicken. It obviously is not vegan for a number of reasons such as having:
- Heavy cream
So how did I veganize this recipe? I used:
- Vegan Butter
- Vegan cream cheese
They’re very easy and should be accessible replacements.
I don’t order Indian much because while many places are vegetarian friendly (sometimes entirely vegetarian) not all items are vegan. So I wanted to create my own inspired butter “chicken” recipe.
This dish also isn’t super spicy, but it does have a lot of great flavor from the Garam Masala.
What is Garam Masala?
Garam Masala is a mixture of different spices put into one. I bought my Garam Masala at Whole Foods. Do not think to skip this spice, it is vital in this recipe. It also just makes it taste delicious.
I guarantee you will be making this recipe often. It is extremely delicious and thankfully I had my mom over the day I made it and she loved it too! This 100% will now be a staple recipe that I make.
