Murg Malai Kabab

This is an update of my earlier post with updated pictures to treat your eyes!๐Ÿ˜Š

I am a big fan of Kabab,as most of the time kabab is on my order.But these days my food order changed, as most of the time I order Chicken Lollipop for obvious reasons that my kid loves that! 
Made these succulent,yummy and tender Chicken/Murg kabab at home and got over in no time and that went beyond my expectations. 

My friend had mentioned once about malai kabab that she had once at a restaurant which were unique in its own way. So thought of trying them out myself.
This recipe was posted by me long time back when I had started my blog. I have updated my pictures here and also updated the write-up and recipe a bit.

Try this recipe, and you will enjoy the tender chicken pieces marinated/grilled/broiled in mild flavors and enjoyed steaming hot with a bowl of soup to accompany.
Well this was my weekend! 
Do try these and enjoy and share your feedback!

    1. Nice Recipe. Do you use the broil option or bake option for this in the oven?

    2. I use Broil or if you have Grill then you can use that too!
