Ingredients
  

  • 500 gm chicken boneless (cubed)
  • 4 tbsp hung curd
  • 4 tbsp fresh cream
  • 3 tbsp grated cheese
  • 2 tbsp mixed paste of ginger (garlic, and green chili)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • ½ tsp kasuri methi
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg powder
  • ¼ tsp green cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp cashew paste

Instructions
 

  • Take 500 gm boneless chicken cubes in a mixing bowl. Add 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp lemon juice, and 1 tbsp ginger-garlic-green chili paste. Mix well with the chicken cubes and let them marinate for 30 min.
  • In another bowl, add 4 tbsp hung curd, 4 tbsp fresh cream, 3 tbsp grated cheese, and 1 tsp kasuri methi. Then add 1 tsp black pepper powder, 1 tsp garam masala, 2 tbsp cashew paste, ¼ tsp nutmeg powder, ¼ tsp green cardamom powder and 1 tbsp oil. Mix all the spices well together. Add the marinated cubes and mix well.
  • Soak the wooden skewers in warm water for at least 30 min. If not soaked, wooden skewers can burn or break while cooking tikka.
  • Now take the cubes and thread them on the skewers. Thread 4 cubes per skewer.
  • Preheat grill pan over high heat. Add 2 tbsp butter and turn the flame to medium. Place 3-4 skewers on a grill pan at the same time. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  • Cook the chicken for 15 min then turn the skewers to the opposite side and cook for another 15 min. Keep brushing butter to malai tikka in between.
  • Transfer the chicken malai tikka in a serving plate and serve hot with green chutney.

Notes

  • Don’t cut the meat cubes too small or too big. Cut them into even sizes.
  • You can use the thigh or breast part of the chicken for the recipe.
  • Cooking time can change depending on the thickness of your grill pan.
  • Preheat the pan before adding the butter to it.
  • If possible, let the chicken marinate for a few hours.
