Murg Reshmi Tikka

Hi All .......
Ready with a post for the coming weekend ...

200-300 gm boneless chicken
1st marination
1/2 ginger-garlic paste
1/4 tsp pepper powder
2nd marination
3 tsp grated cheese
4 tbsp cream 
1 egg white
1/4 tsp ginger-garlic paste
Salt to taste (already in 1st marination)
1 finely chopped green chilly
Few finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
A pinch of elaichi powder
2 tsp cornflour 
Ghee or oil for basting 


  1. Wash, clean, pat dry chicken pieces and keep them aside.
  2. In a bowl mix first marination and apply this mixture to the chicken pieces. Keep it aside for 1 hr at least.
  3. Now mash cheese in a bowl, add egg white and ginger-garlic paste. Mix it nicely.
  4. Add cream, elaichi powder, coriander leaves, green chilly, cornflour and salt. Mix well.
  5. Add chicken pieces into the marinade, mix nicely. Keep it in fridge for 4-5 hrs or overnight.
  6. Take wooden skewers, skew marinated chicken pieces.
  7. Roast them in a gas tandoor on medium flame for 10-15 mins.
  8. Turn and baste the chicken with oil or ghee a couple of times to ensure even cooking and colour.
  9. Cook till chicken gets medium brown from the outside.
  10. Serve hot with salad and green chutney.
Note: Dip wooden skewers in water before using to avoid them burning.
If you don't have gas tandoor you can cook the marinated chicken in microwave too.
Temperature 180c for 20-25 mins or till completely cooked.
