If you happen to quiz a Delhite regarding their favorite dish, 90% of the population would end up mentioning Butter Chicken in their list. Today, almost every shop in the locality sells this famous dish but do they actually serve Butter-Chicken?
The most important ingredient of the dish is undoubtedly the chicken. Nicely cut pieces of chicken which are mildly marinated and char-grilled works best with the gravy. The chicken is supposed to be cooked for a long time so that it remains moist,juicy and retains its flavors. As far as the gravy is concerned, thick and creamy, a little tangy is what is generally expected from a good dish. Not only butter goes in the gravy but loads of cream constitutes the gravy and gives an orange colour to the tomato-based gravy. To top it all, a dash of sugar concludes the dish.
