A classic Indian recipe is absolutely delectable and is a real favourite in our house, frequently served on Curry Friday - a popular family tradition! This world famous recipe is often jokingly referred to as the national bird of Punjab, so popular is it in that region! This recipe is by Gordon Ramsey, and here is what he has to say about it: Gordon: "Butter chicken, or murgh makhani, was one of the first dishes I tasted when I went to India. Its origins can be traced back to Moghul times, but the dish and its history is most closely associated with Delhi's famous Moti Mahal restaurant, where I had the pleasure of eating this fantastic dish. Over time, numerous chefs have attempted to emulate the rich buttery sauce, and flavours vary slightly between restaurants. This is my version of the classic dish."
