butter chicken



Butter Chicken, also known as Murgh Makhani, is a popular Indian dish known for its rich and creamy sauce. The dish was traditionally cooked in a tandoor, but variations of it can now be prepared on the stove or in an oven. The chicken is marinated in a mixture of yogurt and spices, and then cooked and tossed in a rich tomato-based sauce with melted butter and cream. The dish is generally served with naan or rice and makes a comforting meal.
