Melt in mouth delicious malai chicken tikka or murgh malai kebab are one of my favourite They are just super yummy and these taste better than the restaurant ones..
These are nothing but boneless chicken marinated with cream cheese and mild spices ..this is milder than the other kababs..Have tried it many times and we love it absolutely..do try it out ..you will love it too
1/2 kg Boneless Chicken pieces
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chillies chopped fine
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves (optional)
1 tsp black pepper powder
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp fresh cream
2 tbsp cheddar cheese
1 tbsp thick curd/yogurt
1 tbsp oil
Wash the chicken pieces and let the excess water drain completely
Apply salt,pepper and ginger garlic paste and keep aside for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile mix together thick curds,cream cheese cream ,cardamom powder finely chopped chilli and coriander leaves ,cornflour and keep aside for an hour in the fridge
Once ready to cook remove the marinated chicken for at least 10 minutes before you start cooking.
Place the marinated chicken in the skewers and grill in hot grill pan/non stick pan till done.
If using oven cook at 200 degree for 10 minutes on both sides till brown .
Serve with lemon wedges and onion rings..
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
