The dish is originated in the Peshawar but also owes a large part of its flavour heritage to the Delhi, which is also known as the culinary capital of India. It was during the pre-partition, a man named Kundan Lal Gujral owned and operated a restaurant named Moti Mahal in Daryaganj, Delhi. The outlet was famous for its Tandoori chicken, also known as roasted chicken. Due to sheer wastage of unsold dried chicken pieces, Kundan Lal, an astute businessman decided to play around pieces with thick gravy made with butter and cream, tomatoes and spices, butter chicken came into existence. Moti Mahal became a famous attraction of Delhi and it did not take much time to come it in under the limelight and people from every walks of life started enjoying it. Nowadays, innovation has become an important part of life. You might have heard new packaging of butter chicken in the form of tacos, pizza, biryani, roll and many more.
