The History of Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken is marinated chicken cooked in a rich creamy tomato sauce and aromatic spices. This dish is also known as Murgh Makhani and was invented in the 1950’s in Delhi, India. It is credited to three Punjabi restaurateurs, Kundan Lal Jaggi, Kundan Lal Gujral and Thakur Dass, who founded the world-renowned Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi.

It was developed by chance by mixing leftover chicken in a rich tomato gravy with butter and cream. And they soon realized this was the perfect way to hydrate dry tandoori chicken and Butter Chicken was invented and is now one of the most popular Indian dishes.

In 1974, the first recipe for butter chicken was published or better known then as Murgh Makhani. And in 1975 was the first time, butter chicken had appeared in print. For the preparation of Butter Chicken, you first marinate the chicken for several hours or overnight in yogurt and a spice mixture. The spices typically include ginger, garlic, turmeric, cumin and red chili powder.

Garlic, ginger, red chili powder, turmeric, cumin, turmeric, coriander and cinnamon are common spices used in the sauce. Sometimes fenugreek will also be added. Fenugreek is used in many Indian dishes that has slightly sweet, nutty flavour that is comparable to maple syrup and burnt sugar.

Butter Chicken is typically served over rice and served with Naan bread. But it can also be used in tacos, wraps, pizza topping, or over pasta. You could also thin it out with chicken stock and coconut milk and make a soup out of it.
