History and origin of Butter Chicken

Let\’s explore the mystery about butter chicken. Is butter chicken really an Indian dish? Of course, most people would say it is definitely an Indian dish since this is quite favorite among Punjabis. But here is the catch, this dish was invented in Peshawar(now in  Pakistan) by a man named Kundan Lal Gujral.

Kundal Lal used to work in a sweet shop whose name was “Mukhey Da Dhaba”. The owner of the shop was Mokha Singh who was quite elderly at that time with respect to young Kundal Lal. In that shop, Kundan Lal also invented Tandoori Chicken with his great culinary skills.

With passing time, Mokha Singh’s health deteriorated and he sold his shop to Kundan Lal, since then Moti Mahal (he changed the shop’s name to Moti Mahal) has become quite famous and created history.

Being an astute businessman, he realized that hanging Tandoori Chicken in the seekhs gets dry out with passing time if it gets unsold, then he cooked up an idea in his mind and started prepping for making gravy with some mixture of spices, cream, butter, etc. And there it was, the king of dishes “Butter Chicken” made.

In 1947, India got partitioned and Gujral made his way to India from Pakistan. He settled in Delhi and from there he started the chain of restaurants with the name of Moti Mahal.
