Butter chicken is a dish that is truly global. It has surpassed barriers of geography and palettes to emerge victorious in the kitchens of folks across the world. 


The origins of this dish, known as Murgh Makhani in Hindi, have been humble. The dish was first prepared in the 1950s in the kitchen of Moti Mahal, a small restaurant in the Indian Capital of New Delhi. Since then Butter Chicken has made its way into the stomachs and hearts of millions.

Now, we at Indian Gourmet are bringing the humble Butter Chicken and the best of authentic Indian food online, for you to savour and relish.





Why do we love it so? Butter Chicken is inherently a simple and wholesome dish. It involves the tantalising dance of a creamy, tomato curry into which are tossed succulent pieces of tandoori chicken. The chicken is seasoned with spices like cumin, coriander, garam masala, ginger and cumin. These spices then blend beautifully with the rich curry to create a mouth-watering experience. 


If you have never tasted butter chicken before then your first bite will leave you pleasantly surprised.  Butter Chicken is not your regular curry - it is mildly sweet with subtle undertones of tanginess


Butter Chicken is that dish with smooth textures and mild flavours without the intensity of spices. It is a must-try dish for anyone longing to get a taste of the best North Indian meal
