With roots in Punjab in Northern India, rumour has it that the famous Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi designed this delicious curry. Also known as “butter chicken”, this dish is traditionally made by cooking the chicken in a hot oven (or tandoor) and then simmering it in the curry sauce which is then garnished with fenugreek leaves.

Absolutely delicious as good as a takeaway!

Verity - Apr 24, 2019

Would be useful to have a weight for the chicken. My husband doesn’t like thigh meat so I buy breast meat only and I’m pretty sure I had more than 3 thighs worth, so added extra of the other ingredients, but it was guesswork

Absolutely delicious, will definitely be ordering again.

Peter - Apr 19, 2019


Katy - Apr 19, 2019

SO tasty

Julie - Apr 19, 2019

Really enjoyed this after putting couple spoons of tikka powder in it. I advise when marinating the chicken just put a couple spoons yoghurt in as can taste the sour taste when complete. Use more cream than yoghurt. Will order again
