Murg Malai Kabab

Murg Malai Kabab
This is one of the recipe from Vahrehvah.com...This is so easy to make,but many of you think that it is a complicated one..But I am gonna show you that this is far more easier and quicker than you might think.There are a few steps that you should follow so that the kabab comes out more juicer and tender.First try to use a very thick curd,while using ginger garlic paste squeeze out the liquid from it..I used a blender to make the marinate this makes the marinate so smooth..The amount of cornflour is really upto you,If the marinate is so thin use a little more cornflour so that the marinate coats the chicken.I served it with pita bread and salsa(Check recipe here)..It was so good...So hope you give this a try and let me know what you think....

Vibrant Grape Juice - Summer Special Recipes

Grape Juice
I love this juice not only for its taste but for the great colour.This juice gives you a immediate refreshment after a tiring day.Grapes are rich in antioxidant,so what you are drinking is a cup full of antioxidant.Use seedless grapes for this because if you are using the other grapes the seeds may turn bitter while blending and also try to use black grapes if you use white grapes you wont get this colour.
