We’ll bet you won’t find an Indian restaurant that doesn’t serve butter chicken (or murgh makhani). Surprising, you’d think; you probably wouldn’t have guessed buttery fried food would be a staple in the South Asian region. Well, let’s stop you there. That’s not what we’re talking about here. The butter chicken we mean is a creamy, spice-forward dish—more tikka masala than buttered fried chicken. But we get how that might be confusing.
Butter chicken is an Indian staple even beyond restaurants. And we get it—the one-pot dish is so flavor-packed, and goes well with any type of carb. Our recipe makes it even better, promising a hefty serving at only PHP154.53 per person. We recommend adding salt to taste before eating, and pairing it with buttered rice (pour it all over!). You can also whip up some homemade naan, if you’ve got the time.
