Ingredients for the way we make it at shows

  • 1 whole chicken, boiled and shredded
  • 1 kg mixed frozen vegetables from the supermarket (you can choose and chop your own, if you like)
  • 28g Butter Chicken Curry Masala
  • 200g Coconut milk powder
  • 24g Garlic powder
  • 3g Ginger powder
  • 75g Onion powder
  • 24g Salt
  • 5g Tandoori Colour
  • 600g Sour cream
  • 200g Tomato paste


Modern Recipe Method

Melt the butter and add the onion, garlic and ginger. Sauté until the onion is soft. Lower heat, add the Butter Chicken Curry Masala, mix well, frying until aromatic. If the mixture is too dry, add a small amount of water to enable the spice to fry. Add the chicken and seal well. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook until the chicken is tender and reduce the gravy with the lid off until thick.


Traditional Recipe Method

Melt the butter; add the chillies, ginger and coriander. Sauté for a few minutes on medium heat, add the Butter Chicken Curry Masala, mix well, frying until aromatic. If the mixture is too dry, add a small amount of water to enable the spice to fry. Add the pureed onion and garlic and cook until mixture is well mixed, add the chicken and seal well, and then add the remaining ingredients. Cook until done and salt to taste. To thicken the gravy, simmer with the lid off until reaching the desired consistency. Garnish and serve hot with naan bread or rice and tomato chutney.


Method for the way we cook it at shows

We cook this in a rice cooker but you could use a pan (we advise you do not use a slow cooker as this could overcook the chicken).

Prepare chicken by boiling in a pot until cooked, remove all skin and bones whilst shredding all the meat into a new bowl. Keep 400ml of broth.

In the rice cooker, add 750g of shredded chicken, 400ml chicken broth, the frozen vegetables and tomato paste. Bring to a boil.

Once boiling, add all other dry ingredients. Mix well.

Stir in sour cream, heat thoroughly.

    • tracey

      Thanks for your feedback Nicole, glad your family enjoy it!

  2. Allyce McCrohon

    Best butter chicken we have ever had, my son who is a butter chicken connoisseur loves it. We also add vedges and only use half the recommended sour cream.

    • tracey

      Awesome! So relieved to hear great feedback from a true connoisseur! Thanks!

  3. Sarah Treble (verified owner)

  8. Carol Walker (verified owner)

    This is hands down the BEST Butter Chicken spice blend I have ever used. All my friends love it and I have given a few jars away as Christmas pressies. It makes all other blends, both pastes and powders, very poor seconds in comparison. Delicious😀

  9. Mark (verified owner)

    This is the best. It never fails to please. I make curries to give to family members, and this is ALWAYS a hit.

  10. Robin Pittar (verified owner)

    Butter Chicken is one of our favourite curries. It also converts easily to a tofu and vegetable plant based curry.

  11. Robert (verified owner)

    Fantastic flavour – who needs Miss India!. The family loves it when I cook butter chicken.

    All I can say your butter chicken spices are the best ever. I even make this for my vegetarian child and substitute meat with eggplant.

    • tracey (store manager)

      Hi Bridget…Eggplant! Sounds fantastic, what a great way to enjoy Butter chicken.❤️

  14. Annette Rodda (verified owner)

      Thank you! We’re very proud, been making this for more than 20 years now 🙂

  17. Elaine Saccasan (verified owner)

    The Mudgeeraba Butter Chicken mix is the best curry mix I have ever had. I made a lot of my own blends but can’t beat this one. My children and friends love it. I add 1 kg chicken and same in vegetables and play around with the coconut cream/milk ratios and its always a winner.

    • Flavour & Spice (store manager)

      Always happy to hear we’re feeding lots of families with Butter Chicken🌟Be happy and eat curry!

  18. Carmelina Accurso

    Love this. I use olive oil instead of ghee or butter and replace the sour cream with Chobani low fat Greek yoghurt and it’s still delicious.

  19. Pat (verified owner)

    Butter chicken is a favourite at our house. Last purchase was for family members in their Christmas package.

  20. Katrina Herbert (verified owner)

    I love this butter chicken spice and the recipe. I add extra chicken. So easy and very tasty and not too hot for those of us who like the spicey flavour without burning our mouth tissue out!😁

    i HAVE ALMOST FINISHED THE BUTTER CHICKEN CURRY WE PURCHASED WHEN VISITING THE Canberra flower show some two years ago, & it was so good I have just purchased anothe plus a green curry chicken & a Massaman curry for good measure. If they all are as good as the butter chicken, I & our friends will be very happy. thank you.

  24. Sue (verified owner)

    My favourite Mudgeeraba spice! Tried many of your other blends, but keep going back to the old favourite butter chicken. Also bought the tandoori colouring so it looks just like the samples you see at Floriade. Must be my 4th jar now, normally buy at the Floriade in Canberra, but ordered on line this time. Quick delivery time.

  25. Tricia (verified owner)

    The best butter chicken spice mix we have ever tasted – this is our fourth jar. Can easily adapt the recipe to use lower fat options (coconut milk instead of cream and low fat yoghurt instead of sour cream) and it is still delicious! Ordering and delivery process very quick. Thank you.

    • Flavour & Spice (store manager)

      You’ve made our day Tricia! Thanks for the great feedback and we’re happy to hear your recipe changes are working perfectly. We’d love to share your idea to others who’d like a low fat option as well. Thanks so much!

  26. Maria Bryant (verified owner)

    I tried this butter chicken at the Sydney royal Easter show. I could mot believe how wonderful it was. I bought the jar and have been using it ever since. It ran out – I tried others – I then ordered it on line from you because no one came close – Thankyou – it is amazing ❤️👍🥰

    • Flavour & Spice (store manager)

    Repeat customer. Loved the butter chicken when I first tried it at the Chilli Fest in Perth years ago. Packed full of flavour and everyone in the house loves it.

  35. Christine Falwasser (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this spice. It’s the best butter chicken out there.

  36. Paul S (verified owner)

    Been using this for a couple of years now, and it is great! Thanks!

  37. James

    The best butter chicken meal we have ever had.
    The blend as the back-of-pack recipe is fantastic. The instructions were straightforward and all of the measurements for creams and pastes were the same as the packet sizes available at the supermarkets (in Australia). This made purchasing the other ingredients dead simple, and no need to figure out what to do with extra quantities of ingredients in the fridge.

    Now to try all of the other masala blends!

  38. Scott (verified owner)

    Tried the butter chicken blend for the first time after years of using other Mudgerreba Spice products and this one was an instant hit with the entire family. Once you use these products you will never go ack to the run pf the mill generic supermarket packets

  39. David (verified owner)

    Butter chicken is my wife’s favourite curry dish, and this marsala blend is absolutely perect for her level of tolerance (which is in the mild range). I like hot curries, but the flavour here is intense anough to take me to my happy place.

  40. Hayley

    Bought this when I stumbled on them at the Canberra Floriade festival (the free tasting got me) and I love it!!! I love that it makes so many meals from one jar. We are currently travelling so I can’t carry lots of spices so one jar of this will last forever, and beats any jar or pre-mixed butter chicken by FAR. I’ll be back to buy more in different curries for sure!

  41. Jacob (verified owner)

    Butter Chicken, the typical crowd pleaser, even for people who consider curry to be a little exotic for their tastes. It is easy to prepare, has a great flavour and I am yet to meet someone who doesn’t enjoy it. A 240 gram jar lasts for ages.

  42. Rebecca Davis (verified owner)

    My husband would never eat butter chicken, but after making this it is now a weekly staple. It’s a versatile base, just add more for those that love it hot and less for those with a mild palette. The sauce is so creamy and silky, not grainy at all. So happy we stopped and brought this at agquip a couple of years ago. Great value the jar really does last for ages.

  43. Raj Singh (verified owner)

    We tasted these spices 2 years ago at the Canberra Floriade Festival,we purchased the Butter chicken and the Lamb spice both are a big hit at home now especially the butter chicken,we Eve use these spices for our marinade for our BBQS,I ordered a box last week and the Serv was excellent.

  44. Chris Hannagan (verified owner)

    Just got another order of the butter chicken in. Can’t get enough of it. I would eat it everyday if the kids would let me. Blimmin great stuff!

  45. Roxe (verified owner)

    This butter chicken spice mix is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve been buying this since 2012. I usually add some chopped mango or banana as it is cooking. Adds a lovely sweetness. And I’m a vegetarian so I use firm tofu instead of chicken.

  46. Paige Taylor (verified owner)

    The ULTIMATE butter chicken. These curry powders have ruined takeout for my extended family. They come to me now when they want a nice Indian 🙂 Always a pleasure when I re-stock at various Show days and easy to order online. Have been buying these mixes for about 5 years now and will continue to forever. They go a long way (as they’re not filled with salt and sugar) and are just so darn tasty! 10/10 love your work 🙂

  47. Lyn (verified owner)

    The butter chicken spices never fail- my all-time favourite. And so easy! Love love love it.

  48. Denise Smith (verified owner)

    I have been purchasing the butter chicken spice mix for quite a few years. Haven’t found anything else that comes even close to the flavour of this mix. A favourite with all my family as well as the friends I have given a sample (with recipe) to. A real winner!

    • Flavour & Spice (store manager)

      Thanks for sharing the love Denise. We hope your friends love it 🙂

  49. Peter C Nicholas (verified owner)

    Our 19 year old child fell in love with this and other flavours at a tasting session at Canberra Floriade Festival several years ago. It is so good, and so much better than the jars at the local supermarkets. The whole family love having either Butter Chicken or Chicken Tikka Masala every week!

  50. Michelle Houghton (verified owner)

    Have been using this for a few years now and it is brilliant. A quick, easy and delicious dinner when I’m in a hurry and my daughter’s favourite meal. In fact, her friends love it too and their parents ask for the recipe. Just bought some more at the Easter Show, plus a couple of new ones to try.
