I couldn't believe the response, it was absolutely amazing! Within 5 days, I had over 125 orders of butter chicken, and had to say "next time" to just as many friends/family!
Butter chicken day was Friday 22nd June, and there was a lot of Indian spices to roast and grind before actually cooking. My biggest headache was where was I going to store 65lbs of chicken......20 pints of cream......10 packets of butter......so my neighbours’ fridges came into action. On the day itself, cooking started at 6am, and I finished all the cooking, cooling down, packing etc by 3pm, loaded up the car and started on my deliveries, and finally got home at 7pm. And there was not enough butter chicken left for dinner, so we ended up eating good old fish and chips!
Total raised for One Kind Act was £685
Thank you all so much.
I developed my love for cooking from my mother and my sister, both of whom loved to cook dishes from all over the world. So when I had my children, and was a bored mum at home, I set up a business, using my culinary skills, with my sister in law. We provided fresh home-made Indian food every Friday, to parents at my children's school. Our signature dish was the butter chicken.
So after looking for a possible idea to raise funds for One Kind Act, I have decided to offer to cook butter chicken, after an absence of 8 years, to the same parents and extended the offer to family and friends.
So here goes…..
