These places serve the best butter chicken in Delhi

Comfort food is something that makes rainy days better, and for Delhiites, a good plate of butter chicken with some garlic naan on the side often does the trick. So, in case you are looking for a finger-licking good meal, these places serve the best butter chicken in Delhi, and we’re sure you’ll not be disappointed!

A sweet, tomatoey, creamy gravy coating juicy pieces of chicken, served with a side of delicious garlic naan or hot jeera rice. This is probably the comfort food for many across India, especially Delhi, where North Indian, Mughlai cuisine is relished like none other.

For thousands, this meal can make the most tedious days better, and rightly so. The comforting, familiar flavours of tomatoes and whole spices remind one of home, and the chicken, which is first cooked on a tandoor and then added to this gravy, makes the flavours and the creaminess pop even more. And just like chole bhature in Delhi, butter chicken is one dish most Delhiites swear by to make their mood better.

So, head to these places (or order in at home) for the best butter chicken in in the city, which is sure to make you feel warm and happy inside!

From the inventors of butter chicken and dal makhani, Daryaganj is undoubtedly the place to head to for a delectable, flavourful meal. Kundan Lal Jaggi set up a shop in Daryaganj after acquiring training at Moti Mahal, and once he whipped up a gravy with tomatoes, onions and spices, adding tandoori chicken pieces to it to make for a wholesome meal. This is how butter chicken was invented, and Daryaganj today serves two versions of it – original and modern, both equally flavourful (we recommend the original version, though!)
