The Butter Chicken was developed in the 1950s by three Punjabi restaurateurs: Kundan Lal Gujral, Kundan Lal Jaggi and Thakur Dass, who were the founders of Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi, India. The dish was made "by chance" by mixing the leftover chicken in a tomato gravy, rich in butter and cream.

The Butter Chicken was developed in the 1950s by three Punjabi restaurateurs: Kundan Lal Gujral, Kundan Lal Jaggi and Thakur Dass.

The dish, which is also called Murgh Makhani in Hindi, is without question the most popular dish to emerge from India; it may even be one of the most popular dishes in the world. If you are just going to an Indian restaurant for the first time, your friends will likely recommend it as a starting place. Its mildly spicy, creamy, savoury flavour makes it more than just delicious, but accessible to almost every palate.

Butter Chicken can serve together with NAAN or RICE. There are alot of recipes available in the online, Allspice also developed own recipe by Chef Anup which is sharing here for our students knowledge.
