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....


Boneless Chicken-1/2 kg
Cardamom powder(yelakai podi)-1 tsp
Baking Powder-1 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste-1 tblpsn

In a bowl mix together chicken with salt,pepper,baking powder,cardamom powder and set this aside for 10 min.

Pour this marinate over the chicken.Add cornflour over it and mix well.drizzle a tsp of oil over it and let it marinate for 15 min.

Place this chicken on a foil lined baking tray and put this in preheated oven for 10 min.After 10 min turn the oven to broil mode and grill for 15-20 min by keeping the tray close to the grill.Turn the chicken once so that the other side also gets grilled.

mam i have got sunflame OTG , WANT TO MAKE THIS BUT HAVE NOT understood broil method can you please explain this so that ican go ahead with this recpie.

Aarthi said...


Congrats on buying a new OTG..OTG's are heated by a coil or element that are fixed in the top and bottom of the oven. If you want broil mode, you should set it accordingly so that the top element alone heats up.So that the chicken or whatever gets nice colour and turns crispy. If you are baking, you need to heat both the element so that the cake bakes evenly. there will be options in the oven to do this..Hope this helps you..Come back if need any more assitance..

hello mam ,tommorrow i am planning to make this but again two question have arised first the oven should be preheated with both elements if i want to make this only on broiling mode , secondly on which rack should the chicken tray be placed in OTG for broiling?

Aarthi said...


Heat the grill element alone..

Place the tray in the top most rack. But don't make the chicken to touch the element

Hi aarti. Nice recipe. If making this in a microwave do I have to only use convection mode or will have to use grill option also.

Aarthi said...
