      In Butter Chicken naturally the medium of cooking is butter. Here we use oil... either refined sunflower or groundnut oil. ThanX Trsmd for visiting.

      I think Mughlai chicken curry is also known as Butter Chicken...

      Great recipe! I subbed tomato paste for the fresh tomatoes, and it still came out spectacularly.

      Thank you Abhishek for your analysis. You may be right about the tomatoes but I make my Mughlai Chicken Curry this way and it tastes great. Do try it out.

      This is NOT Mughlai Chicken. Though it would make a great tasting curry but it's NOT Mughlai. Tomatoes were not used by the Mughals and were introduced into India by the Portuguese, and it was only very recently that they were incorporated into Indian cuisine.

      Tomatoes have to replaced by more yoghurt in the recipe.

      Two key Mughlai ingredients which are missing here are roasted almond paste and cream (malai).

      Anyway, GREAT RECIPE, WRONG NAME!
