This ‘Butter Chicken’ Cook-in Sauce is the vegan version of the sauce used in the renowned North Indian dish Butter Chicken, without the greasiness and heaviness of butter or cream. It’s a versatile and mild sauce with warming spices and provides a comforting, rich base for any dish or bake. This delicious creamy sauce is aimed at vegans, but is versatile enough to satisfy any palate.

How to use
Simply pan fry your delicious seasonal produce with some olive oil and chopped spring onion until cooked. Next add in the cook-in-sauce and 1/2 cup of water as the sauce is super thick. Simmer for 3-5 minutes and voila! Please note cashew nuts burn easily so it is recommended to always add at the end of cooking with a few minutes to simmer into food.
Delicious in a vegetable casserole with ground vegetables like sweet potato, carrots, beets, spring onion and green peppers. Slather with the sauce, thinned slightly with water and bake until golden.
Ingredients and Packaging
Cashew nuts, spices, garlic, onion, ginger, curry-leaves, chilli and salt. Comes in a 250g glass jar. The jar can and should have a second life. Please reuse or repurpose your empty jar.
