Honey And Chilli Butter Recipe: How To Make Padma Lakshmi's Honey and Chilli Butter
All your ingredients need to be at room temperature. If you have frozen butter, then don't heat it in a microwave as it will completely melt the butter and it will lose its texture. Rather you can use this nifty hack to make your butter room temperature:
Simply mix together room temperature butter with honey, cayenne powder and Kashmiri red chilli powder till it is combined and the butter turns slightly red. Place the soft butter on butter paper and wrap it the way you want the butter to shape. Place it in your fridge and let it freeze. The honey and chilli butter is ready.
