Chicken Malai Tikka


  • Boneless Chicken: Typically, boneless chicken chunks or cubes are used for this dish, ensuring quick and even marination as well as a tender texture after cooking.
  • Malai (Cream): The star ingredient that gives this tikka its rich and creamy texture. It adds a luxurious and indulgent flavor to the chicken.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt acts as a tenderizer and contributes a slight tanginess to the marinade, balancing the richness of the cream.
  • Spices: A combination of aromatic spices such as garam masala, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and red chili powder imparts a depth of flavor and a beautiful golden color.
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste: This paste adds a pungent and savory kick, enhancing the overall taste of the marinade.
  • Lemon Juice: The acidity in lemon juice not only adds a zesty flavor but also helps in tenderizing the chicken.
  • Fresh Herbs: Chopped cilantro (coriander) or mint leaves contribute freshness and a burst of herbal notes.
  • Salt: To enhance the overall seasoning and flavor profile.
