  2. 125 g fresh thick yoghurt/curd
  3. 50 g fresh cream
  4. 2 tsps of ginger garlic paste
  5. Coriander and green chilli paste ( I have used 2 green chillies and 1/2 a cup of chopped coriander for making a rough paste)
  6. 2 tsps black pepper powder
  7. salt to taste
  8. 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  9. 1 tbsp olive oil to shallow fry
Marination Time : min 2 – 4 hrsCooking time 15 – 20 minsServes :3

Procedure to make Murgh Malai Tikka

  1. Clean, wash and cut the chicken into cubes. Then add all the ingredients except for the oil and mix well. Make sure the chicken pieces are well covered with the marinade

  2. Then cover with a kling wrap and refrigerate for about 2-4 hours. You could even marinate overnight for tender and juicy murgh malai tikka

  3. Arrange the chicken on wooden skewers and shallow fry until golden brown from both sides. When you see liquid leaving from the sides turn on high flame until it begins to reduce. When it has evaporated 60% you could cover and cook for about 5 mins.

  4. Your Murgh Malai Tikkas are ready to be served with mint chutney or just like that 🙂
