Murg Malai Kabab Recipe / Chicken Reshmi Kabab Recipe

I have already shared my recipe for murg malai kabab. I would say that this is my all time favorite kabab, and i wanted to reshare it with new pictures.

This kabab is so juicy and very mild so i am sure kids will love it for sure. This is great for parties. Marinate the chicken the day before and grill it just before serving. It will hit the spot for sure..

  5. @paricheddar cheese, amul cheese slice or cube will be good

  6. @Anonymousyes they are optional..but add cardamom if u enhances the flavour.

  7. Can you post a recipe of a dip for this kebab??

  8. Hi Aarthi. The baking tray used here is made of cast iron? Or can u please guide me on how should I purchase it. Is it oven based... I would like to try this dish...

  9. Hi, its sanju, I have BBQ unit, how do I grill reshmi kebab on it, with foil,?

  10. @Anonymousyes u can grill them, place a foil as you said. or you can place the skewer directly over it

  11. Hi! In the recipe u hv mentioned to do it in grill mode...later mention convection mode...which one will be more perfect for this revipe

  12. @Moon Jashnaniyes u can cook, but you have to cook it on a very low heat

  13. Hi, I tried this recipe the other day and it took almost an hour for it to get grilled even though my chicken pieces were small. When I tasted it after 30 min, the chicken was cooked well inside, but the outer marinating covering was stil having that raw taste and had not dried also. Please help me how I can avoid grilling chicken for such a long time as the final result is that the chicken tastes good, but it is not juicy and is hard.

  14. @Anonymousif you cook it too long then it will turn hard. Did you place the tray on the top rack and did you marinate it well

  15. Hii..i tried it n dey turned out to b hubby loved posting such amzng recipes..waiting for more chicken recipes frm ur syde

  16. The recipe is superb. Bt i am nt good vd grilling cn i shallow fry it? Plzzzz help

  17. @aishano i dont think frying works. u have to grill them

  18. Hi aarthi i tried this but it was a big mess... I preheated oven for 10 mins in convection mode.. Then baked chickn for 8 mins both sides.. And then grilled for 5 mins but the chicken was nt cooked from inside... Pls help

  19. @sohail khanyou can increase the cooking time them. First bake it in high temp, then reduce the temp and bake for longer

  20. I once had chicken malai tikka at a hotel while travelling, since then I'm in love with this thing and always wished to prepare it myself. The way you elaborated the things are very good and I sure make this good stuff at home and no wonder it works perfectly, thank you.

  21. Hi, I want to serve these kebabs at a party but not sure of the power situation. So was wondering if I can cook them ahead of time and just before serving, I cook it on a tava. Would it work?

  22. What is the fresh cream you told here ?

  23. @Anonymousit is amul cream..u can use whipping cream as well

  24. Wow these look soo good. Bet they taste amazing. Thanks for sharing this recipe.


  25. my whipping cream is non diary....can i use it

  26. Mam can we soak the skewer in water for sometime to prevent burning while cooking the chicken.

  27. Hi Aarthi... I made this today for our new year's party n as like all ur recipes this too turned out so well... I had a lil concern.. Will u please guide me how to make this in a microwave... I tried both grill n combi mode n then finally i gt the required result.
