The Secret Behind Our Award-Winning Butter Chicken

When it comes to Indian cuisine, there's one dish that stands out as a beloved classic: Butter Chicken. But not all Butter Chickens are created equal. At Indian Rogan Josh, we're proud to have been awarded the title of "Best Butter Chicken in Melbourne," we're excited to share the secrets behind our mouthwatering, award-winning creation.

The Butter Chicken Legacy

Butter Chicken, also known as "Murg Makhani" in Hindi, is a dish that has captured the hearts and taste buds of people worldwide. It's a dish known for its rich, creamy tomato-based gravy and tender, tandoor-cooked chicken. Yet, what sets our Butter Chicken apart is the careful attention to detail and the use of the finest ingredients.

The Art of Marination

One of the keys to our Butter Chicken's exceptional flavour is the marination process. Before the chicken ever touches the tandoor, it's bathed in a blend of yogurt and spices, allowing the flavours to penetrate the meat. The result? A tender, aromatic chicken that's packed with taste.

The Perfect Balance of Spices

Indian cuisine is famous for its complex and harmonious use of spices. Our Butter Chicken is no exception. It's the perfect balance of spices like cumin, coriander, garam masala, and, of course, butter. This combination creates a taste that's both rich and nuanced, with a hint of sweetness that's utterly irresistible.

Creamy Tomato Magic

The creamy tomato gravy in Butter Chicken is what ties the dish together. Made from fresh tomatoes and enriched with cream, this sauce elevates the dish to a culinary masterpiece. It's this sauce that you'll want to mop up with a piece of warm naan or enjoy over a bed of fluffy basmati rice.
