About  Makhani Curry

Makhani is a Hindustani word meaning “with butter”. It is used in the names of several dishes from Punjabi cuisine. Murgh Makhani is an Indian dish of chicken in a mildly spiced curry sauce. It is served in India and abroad. The dish has its roots in Punjabi cuisine and was developed by the Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi India. Murgh Makhani is not the same thing as tikka masala; both the recipes look similar and use marinated grilled chicken/ paneer in the sauce, but the base sauce for the two recipes are quite different. While the tikka masala is told to have been created from Campbell's Tomato Soup, the sauce for Makhani is made with pureed juicy tomatoes, and spices cooked in butter, and is finished off with fresh cream. The primary aroma of the dish unfolds with the addition of the kasuri methi/ dried fenugreek leaves. This Makhani curry recipe requires some preparation the day before and marinating overnight. This creamy Makhani curry has a mildly spicy undertone, which will leave you wanting more! This Makhani Curry Spice Kit will serve up to 4 people.
