Punjab Grill

Kund Indian Barbeque

This tiny restaurant on Indiranagar’s 100 feet road has always made patrons happy by dishing out comforting North Indian khana. Their flaky rotis or khulchas paired with the creamy Butter Chicken, in particular, will leave you with a happy belly. The melting dollop of makhan that they add does its bit to revv up the decadence quotient of the dish.

This popular ice-cream parlour offers a menu with short-eats as well. And on it, you can spot the Butter Chicken Pizza. The well-done base comes layered with the familiar tomato and onion gravy and chunks of chicken. The cheese on top is a welcome addition that adds gooeyness to the creation.

Known for its unapologetic celebration of Punjabi food, this spiffy restaurant will not disappoint you with its Butter Chicken offering. The Murgh Makhani {available in full and half portions} is made up of Tandoori Chicken that floats in a tomato and butter gravy that’s made richer by the addition of a smooth cashew paste. Drool!

Monkey Bar

Two of North India’s best-known comfort foods come together in the Butter Chicken Khichdi served at one of Indiranagar best bars. The spice-loaded khichdi is made with simple ingredients like rice and moong dal. The butter chicken adds plenty of oomph and ups the dish’s creaminess quotient.

Social

Butter Chicken Biryani, FTW! A great dish to nibble on after you’ve downed a few, the dish served at the always-crowded Social is easy to mop up. The fragrant biryani that’s got plenty of spice to mixes perfectly with the silken Butter Chicken. If you’ve got a glass of beer on the side, you’ve got yourself an out-and-out winner.

The Yellow Chilli

Sanjeev Kapoor’s restaurant serves up a delicious, must-try Murgh Makhani. Cubes of chicken are first slathered with spices and cooked in a tandoor. It is then stirred in with the gravy to make a top-notch Butter Chicken. The lachha and the flaky warqi parathas make for a killer combination with the chicken.

If you like your butter chicken to come with a twist, try the Chitta Butter Chicken at this swanky restaurant. A special, chef creation, the Chitta Butter Chicken features succulent pieces of chicken that have spent time in the tandoor. But the highlight is the curry that’s made with yoghurt, onion, and kasoori methi instead of the usual tomato gravy. Of course, it’s finished off with butter and cream.
