This is a perfect blend of east and west and combines two popular dishes.
The Origins of Butter Chicken
Butter Chicken first originated in Delhi. Two families are in dispute even today as to who really invented it, regardless, it came about because of a need to use leftovers, specifically marinated tandoori chicken.
So as not to waste, the chef added grilled tandoori chicken leftovers to a butter and tomato sauce. He then served this to customers. It was in essence, a happy accident.
Since then, chefs in India have perfected the butter chicken we get today. It is a blend of chicken chunks which have been marinated for hours in yogurt, garam masala and other spices. The results are incomparable. Love it or hate it, there is no denying that butter chicken is well loved worldwide.
