Tamarind Butter

We developed this compound butter with Geeta brand tamarind chutney. It's great slathered on bread, and is especially good on Taiwanese flaky scallion pancakes. The butter can be made ahead and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to three days; bring to room temperature before serving.

6 tablespoons tamarind chutney
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce
2 teaspoons curry powder, toasted
Kosher salt and ground white pepper
12 tablespoons (1½ sticks) salted butter, cut into 12 pieces, room temperature
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

Tip

Don't soften the butter in the microwave, as the butter inevitably winds up partially melted. It's best to let the butter soften slowly at room temperature.
