It was the time of 1947, where some mixed emotions were rolling on. On one side India is celebrating independence, on the other side people are starting their lives from scratch. Similarly, one refugee named Kundan Lal Jaggi came from Peshawar to Daryaganj in Delhi. He had an amazing talent for cooking. Along with his two friends, he started a restaurant there. In the restaurant one night many guests arrived and all the food from the kitchen was sold. He went to the kitchen and mixed a few pieces of tandoori chicken in tomato and butter gravy and served it to the guest. This is the story of the invention of butter chicken. Dal makhani was also invented in the restaurant. Kundan Lal Jaggi is the grandfather of Raghav Jaggi. After the death of Kundan in 2018, Raghav Jaggi started daryaganj in 2019.
