Murgh makhani also called Indian butter chicken is referring to a chicken dish made with a combination of butter, cream and yogurt gravy. In Hindi , "murgh"means chicken and "makhani" means buttery. There are basically two (2) phases of making this dish. First phase involves marinating boneless pieces of chicken in a rich blend of aromatic herbs and lastly, cooking in a Tandoor. This rich Mughlai dish is best enjoyed with hot Lachha Parathas or Tandoori Rotis.


Likewise, it is a dish of boneless pieces of chicken (called murgh in India) cooked in butter with tomato sauce (Makhan is butter in Indian) is a favorite speciality all over India.

Notes:

This is one of the favorite dishes of my best friend in India and she let me try it and the dish is really delicious, but too rich and creamy. I like though the different spices and herbs that goes with it. I think, as a rice eater, I will like to try eating it with rice rather than Rotis or Chappattis.
