murgh malai kebab /chicken malai kabab ,how to make chicken malai tikka

You can add meat tenderizer/papaya paste in the first marinade,I have never used it as i marinate it well ahead so that the meat is cooked succulent and really well.
If you love to make it extra rich you can also add 2 tbsp mava/khoya to the second marinade.
Always cook on medium flame as it has cheese it turns brown fast.
Use salt sparingly since cheese is salty too.
Soak the wooden skewers in water for an hour before you use it
