In a large bowl, mix together marinade ingredients, then add chicken thighs and coat with marinade. Leave to marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Turn Russel Hobbs Mulitcooker onto ‘Sear’ mode, then melt butter in Multicooker. Once butter has melted, add onion and sauté for 5-7 mins, until very soft and start to turn a golden colour.
Add garlic and ginger, sauté for 2 mins before adding tomato paste, cumin, turmeric, garam masala, chilli powder and ground coriander. Stir well and continue to cook for 1 min, then add chicken thighs. Cook chicken thighs for 5-10 mins, ensuring they are not sticking.
Add chicken stock, stir well until everything is mixed and bring to a low simmer. Change mode on Mulitcooker to ‘High Slow Cook’, cover with lid and leave to slow cook for 4 hours.
Once butter chicken has slow cooked, remove lid, stir and check consistency of butter chicken. If you would like a thicker sauce, then turn back to ‘Sear” mode a simmer down rapidly. If not, then stir in double cream to Butter Chicken and serve immediately.
