    ½ cup (135g) butter chicken
    curry paste
    ⅔ cup (190g) greek yoghurt
    2 teaspoons garam masala
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    ¾ cup (210g) tomato puree
    ¼ cup (60ml) pouring cream
    ¼ cup chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
    12 roti pieces (375g) (see tips)
    2 tablespoons flaked almonds

    Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add chicken mixture; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in tomato puree; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; cook, covered, for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened. Stir in cream and coriander; simmer for a further 5 minutes. Season to taste. Cool.

    Line prepared holes with two roti squares, overlapping slightly; trim hard edges with scissors. Spoon ⅔ cup butter chicken into each roti case. Top with roti squares; press edges firmly to seal. Sprinkle with flaked almonds. Close lid; cook for
    8 minutes or until roti is golden.


Before using the roti, flatten the bread with a rolling pin. You can use garlic naan instead if you prefer. To make these in a smaller pie maker, see page 7 for information on how much filling they hold, then adjust accordingly. Butter chicken will keep frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before using.
