Short History: Butter Chicken was created in the 1950’s in a restaurant called Moti Mahal in Delhi, India, and was created by the owner, Kundan Lal Jaggi. According to him, he created it by chance when he mixed leftover Tandoori chicken in a tomato gravy rich in butter and cream. “Butter Chicken” was first published in a cookbook in 1975 and was called Murgh Makhani. The English name “Butter Chicken” was not used until Gaylord Indian Restaurant in Manhattan began using the dish.
