Butter chicken, also known as murgh makhani in Hindi, is a popular Indian dish that originated in the northern parts of India. This creamy, tomato-based curry is made with boneless chicken, spices, and butter, and is known for its rich and aromatic flavors. The dish was created in the 1950s by a restaurant in Delhi called Moti Mahal, and has since become one of the most popular dishes in Indian cuisine. Butter chicken is loved for its smooth, buttery texture, its mildly spiced tomato-based gravy, and its delicious aroma.
