Named after the creamy tomato sauce at its heart (‘makhani’ means ‘butter’), this Punjabi curry is better known outside of India in its ‘butter chicken’ incarnation. While grounded in North Indian cuisine’s traditional use of spices, dairy and acids to enrich and preserve meat, the original recipe was invented in a flash of inspiration by a chef at Delhi’s iconic Moti Mahal restaurant, stirring butter and tomatoes into leftover tandoori chicken that had dried out. It wasn't long before prawns received the makhani treatment, their juicy tenderness proving ideal in this famously silky, classically mild sauce.
