Indian Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani)

Authentic in house made sauce of butter, spices, tomato and ginger garlic mix with pieces of chicken breast to produce the most popular dish in the world, served with naan bread & basmati rice.

Of all the spices in added to the dish from Northwestern India it is dried fenugreek leaves (Hindi: kasuri methi) that makes the greatest contribution to the characteristic flavor of the dish.  Fenugreek is used both as a herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed).  It is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop and is frequently used in curry.  The name fenugreek is from Latin for “Greek Hay” due to the plant’s similarity to wild clover.
