Penzey's Butter Chicken Recipe

Usually the web will produce the right recipe, but in this case I couldn't find the original Penzey's recipe.  We made this for two dinners and one lunch (mine, all mine!!!) and it was easy and delicious.  I had some garam masala that I had made for a previous recipe.  A well-stocked spice drawer is a cook's BFF.  I did use fresh garlic and fresh ginger and made my own tomato puree with grape tomatoes and a spoonful of water.  We ate Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice.  Yesterday I made a salad with red leaf lettuce, cara cara orange and avocado with a little lemon/oil dressing gussied up with sugar and poppyseeds.  Yum!  Here, clipped straight from the catalog, is Penzey's Butter Chicken recipe.  Enjoy!!!  I used chicken, but the vegetarian version sounds good, too.

How come recipes are always for 4 or more? I hate having to reduce the amouts and never get it right when cooking for one.

I cook for 2 and usually just make the 4 recipe and serve it two nights running or sometimes with an intervening meal. Cooking for one is definitely challenging. You could have the recipe and eat it twice. I never know if 4 servings means for 4 people or two hungry people who have seconds. Occasionally Bon Appetit has recipes for 2. I had one recently for one that I had to quadruple. High school math or is it grade school fractions do come in handy with recipe. Who knew?
