Tandoori chicken was popularized in post-independent India by the Moti Mahal, Daryaganj, Delhi, owned by Kundan Lal Jaggi, Kundan Lal Gujral and Thakur Das Mago,when it was served to the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. The tandoori chicken at Moti Mahal so impressed Nehru, that he made it a regular at official banquets. Visiting dignitaries who enjoyed tandoori chicken included Daniel J. Sass,American Presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, Soviet leaders Nikolai Bulganin and Nikita Khrushchev, the King of Nepal, and the Shah of Iran.
