Indian Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani)

Indian Butter chicken (Murgh Makhani)

Butter Chicken  is most of us favorite side dish order when we visit restaurants. But how about someone like me who stays abroad and limited options of Indian restaurants!? Yes, home cooking is the only option. And getting restaurant like food at home it self make our loved one so happy. So here is a mouth-watering Restaurant style Butter Chicken recipe with oven grilled chicken.

Butter chicken is an Indian side dish, cooked in mildly spiced cream and tomato based gravy with chicken cooked in Tandoor(clay oven),grilled in oven or pan-fried. Mostly served with tandoori roti/Naan or any other Indian bread like Layered Paratha , Chapathi or any bread of your choice. I served this finger licking Butter chicken with Onion paratha, which was also a delicious combo.

You can use left over tandoori chicken after a barbecue party or can make the chicken ready a head of time. Keeping chicken to marinate over night makes chicken more flavorful and tender.

Indo-Chinese Chilli Garlic Chicken

Here is another side dish and my first chicken dish to my blog. This is one of my all time favorite side dish. I remember when I was kid, my sister used to cook and experiment many varieties of dishes and Indo-chinese chilli chicken is one amongst them. She is one of the wonderful cook, which I grew up seeing.

This is my 3rd trial of chilli garlic chicken and I felt it came out well. So thought to introduce here.I served chili garlic chicken with Chinese Steamed Bun, which was an amazing combination. You can also serve it with any kind of roti, fried rice, steamed rice, chapathi, Layered Paratha/Lacha Paratha (Multi Layered Indian Flat Bread) etc…

When you get chinese dishes from restaurants, most of them they add ajinomoto- a taste maker, heard which is not good for your health. Here is the recipe without the addition of ajinomoto, yet tastes amazing!

I made this dish little gravy style, if you prefer can make it dry too.
