Punjab Grill’s Butter Chicken

For all the Butter Chicken Lovers !

So, I was lucky enough over the last weekend to host a cooking demo masterclass with Punjab Grill’s Executive Chef, Mr. Javed Ahmed.

He demonstrated three scrumptious dishes but my favourite (in fact probably everybody’s favourite) was the  delicious, gastronomic, finger licking good Butter Chicken. Butter chicken (or murgh makhani) is part of Indian cuisine, popular in countries all over the world. The origins of butter chicken can be traced back to Britain, where Indian chefs created a dish to suit the European palate.

Upon request, Mr. Javed was kind enough to e-mail us his secret recipe.  Get a pen and paper ready & check it out!
