Delhi Butter Chicken


India’s favourite. Marinated chicken, slow cooked in a creamy sauce with tomatoes and spices. The Real Tikka Masala.

A famous chef in Delhi taught me this recipe and I have been perfecting it for decades.
Serve with a dollop of butter for extra decadence and add extra chillies if you prefer.
– Chef Akila.
