 Origin of this authentic dish

Butter Chicken was born in a city called Peshawar about twenty years before India gained independence from British Raj. A man called Mokha Singh owned a small restaurant called “Mukhey Da Dhabba”. After his health started deteriorating he sold his business to his employee Kundan Gujral.

Being an innovative businessman, Gujral realized that the unsold chicken hanging on skewers would eventually run dry if it sits there. He came out  with  a simple idea. He created a gravy of tomatoes, butter, cream and some spices to marinate the leftover dried chicken and that is how “butter chicken” was born. After the partition Gujral moved to New Delhi and opened an eating joint called Moti Mahal (Palace of beads). The original recipe has since then been improvised indefinite times and also the name of the restaurant replicated. With the lost originality, the versions of Butter Chicken recipes found now days are a way too sweet or too hot.

Still waiting for 1st order.

My order was for Butter Chicken and for Rendang. The order on the website was charged but not delivered. I contacted Leena directly and she kindly arranged for the order to be resent.

Butter chicken and dal makhani

My dal was so delicious, I eat it everyday so will place an order for a bigger packet. The kids said the butter chicken was so good, better than any other sauces we have tried.
