Murgh Malai Kebab Recipe
I have already shared my recipe for murg malai kabab. I would say that this is my all time favourite kabab, and i wanted to re share 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.
What is the meaning of Reshmi Kabab?
Reshmi is an Indian word for silk. This describes the silky-textured, delectable chicken kababs that are a traditional Mughlai dish prepared in India. The juicy succulence of the meat added to the skewers gives Reshmi kabab its name.
The marinade of curd, cream, cashew nuts, and spices gives it a distinct flavour. In fact, the terms Reshmi and & Malai refer to the use of curd and cream. This kababs marination is so juicy and tender that it transforms into a mouth-watering kabab dish. The length of time it is cooked is regarded as an important factor in determining its
Ingredients for the Murgh Malai Kabab Recipe
White Pepper Powder :
White pepper or White Pepper Powder is frequently used in dishes that require a peppery bite but do not require black flecks, such as white sauces and potato dishes. Ground white pepper is used in Chinese cooking to flavour soups, marinades for meat and poultry, and spicier stir-fries.
Green Chilli :
The green chillies in cooked or raw form give a fiery hot flavor. To reduce the fiery hot flavor the seeds and inner membranes could be removed which is effective at reducing the heat of the pod.
Fresh Cream :
Fresh cream is a dairy product derived from milk. It is created by processing and sterilising milk at high temperatures before packaging it. Because it contains only 18-25% milk fat, it cannot be used as whipping cream (which contains almost 35 percent milk fat).

Thanks for visiting my blog, this particular recipe drew my attention, I like the detailed description with the photos, will come back again.
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.
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?
Heat the grill element alone..
Place the tray in the top most rack. But don't make the chicken to touch the element
wow i just love your recipies, What OTG do u have ? I am planning to but one. Thank you 🙂
@SubhaI used a koryo 19 liter OTG oven for making this.
can this be done in microwave grill mode ?
@AnonymousIt should have convection mode.
Hi how should i grill this in a convection mode pls assist thank u.
@Sameeha BasithSame method, just set the oven to convection mode and cook.
Hi,which cheese can we use?
Should i add baking powder n cardamom powder too like how it was mentioned in your other post about murg malai kabab or are they optional?
@paricheddar cheese, amul cheese slice or cube will be good
@Anonymousyes they are optional..but add cardamom if u need..it enhances the flavour.
I have tried your many recipes. Infact i find your way of cooking and explaining are very understanding and easy. thanks for sharing.

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.

@Anonymousgrill mode is perfect
Can we cook in tawa
@Moon Jashnaniyes u can cook, but you have to cook it on a very low heat
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.
@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
