Butter chicken or Murgh Makhani is an Indian dish, popular all over the world. The origins of butter chicken can be traced back to Delhi, during the period of Mughal Empire. According to a documentary by the Discovery Channel, butter chicken recipe was invented by a person working in the kitchen staff of a famous restaurant called Moti Mahal located in Daryaganj, the central region of Delhi. Called Murg Makhani in Hindi, Butter Chicken originated in the 1950s at the Moti Mahal restaurant in Old Delhi. Famed for its Tandoori Chicken, the cooks there used to recycle the leftover chicken juices in the marinade trays by adding butter and tomato. This sauce was then tossed around with the tandoor-cooked chicken pieces and presto - Butter Chicken was ready! The leftover dish appealed to Delhites and was quickly lapped up by the rest of the world.Answered by Ataur Rahman, 21 Sep '13 03:25 pm
The origins of butter chicken can be traced to Delhi during the period of the Muslim Mughal Empire. Butter chicken doesn't have butter. As you probably already know. It is called butter chicken because of its texture. The tomato sauce gives this buttery texture look and that's why it is named so.Answered by Stone Heart, 21 Sep '13 03:28 pm
