Vegan Tofu Butter “Chicken” – Vegan Indian Cuisine Recipe

How to make this delicious, cruelty free, vegan tofu butter chicken! This is one of my favorite dishes from the Indian cuisine that I have stopped eating. So in this video we re-create the vegan version of it!



My Jazz band website:

Vegan butter “chicken”

For the Tofu “chicken” Marinade

600g Good quality firm tofu

1 large chunk of fresh ginger

4 cloves of garlic

1 cup cashew nuts (soaked in hot water for 20 minutes)

Garam masala


dry red chili


sweet paprika

cardamom white flour

juice of one whole lemon

To your blender add the cashew nuts with 1 cup of water or less and blend that up until smooth creamy and delicious. Set that aside. Cut the tofu blocks into big chunks and place them in a bowl along with all the spices, lemon juice, grated garlic, flour, and grated fresh ginger. Add half the cashew nut cream and mix all the ingredients together, covering every piece of tofu. Once mixed take each piece of tofu and slide them on to kebab skewers. Bake these for 20-25 minutes in the oven at 150 degrees Celsius. While that is baking, its time to make the sauce!

For the sauce:

400 ml organic coconut milk ( we only want to use the cream from one can of coconut milk. We don’t need the liquid for this recipe.

The rest of the cashew nut cream that we used for the marinade

2 tbsp vegan butter. I used margarine

1 cup tomato sauce

1 onion

a pinch of dried red chili

garam masala



4 cloves of grated garlic

1 large chunk of grated ginger


To a frying pan add the butter, and let it melt on medium heat. Then add the onions, garlic, ginger, and all the spices. Let that cook for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato sauce, cashew nut cream, and the cream of the coconut milk. Stir all the ingredients together and let it bubble. This should take about 5-7 minutes too cook. After 7 minutes or so transfer the sauce to a blender and blend it up until smooth and creamy. transfer mixture back into your frying pan. Remove the tofu from the oven and slide the tofu pieces off the skewer and into the sauce. Serve hot with naan bread! 😊





  1. Enjoy this delicious meal guys!

  2. It was delicious!!! My kids love it 😍, thank you for share this delicious 😋 recipe!!!

  3. Guys! I made this and it's so good 😍😋 Although I didn't like the texture of the tofu when oven cooking as I like my tofu crispy. So I usually cover tofu in cornflour and fry to get a crispy texture 🤩

  4. What brand of garam masala did you use? Thank you for the recipe

  5. This was by the besssstt tofu recipe for me. Just so yummy .. thank u so much !

  6. haha she laighed when she said nut cream 1:15

  7. I just made this recipe–Loved it. At first, I was grimacing while I marinated the tofu, because I accidentally added all the ginger and garlic to the marinade. Also, I wish I had skewers on hand because that is a great idea so the tofu can cook all the way around and doesn't stick to the pan. I thought that the video was a little silly at first because she kept saying, "oh my GOD this is soo good!" but after making the sauce, I was doing the same thing!! My sauce came out absolutely delicious! I think I'll figure out some actual measurements for the spices so that I can make it just as good every time. Anyway, I loved this recipe and I'm definitely going to make it again. 🙂
