Butter chicken is a popular Indian dish made with marinated chicken that is cooked in a creamy tomato and butter sauce. The dish is believed to have originated in the Indian city of Delhi in the 1950s. It is said that Kundan Lal Gujral, a restaurateur in Delhi, invented butter chicken when he was looking for a way to use up leftover tandoori chicken. Gujral marinated the leftover chicken in a yogurt and spice mixture, then cooked it in a creamy tomato sauce made with butter, tomatoes, and spices. The dish was an instant hit, and it quickly became one of the most popular dishes on the menu at Gujral’s restaurant.

Butter chicken is typically made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs that are marinated in a mixture of yogurt, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, and spices. The chicken is then cooked in a tandoor oven or grilled. The sauce is made by sautéing onions and garlic in butter, then adding tomatoes, cream, and spices. The sauce is then simmered until thickened and creamy.

Once the chicken and sauce are prepared, they are combined and served hot. Butter chicken is typically served with rice or naan bread. It can also be served with other Indian side dishes, such as raita, dal, and tandoori chicken.

Butter chicken is a delicious and flavorful dish that is perfect for any occasion. It is a great way to enjoy the flavors of Indian cuisine.
