Chicken Malai Kebab: Recipe with Step by Step Pictures

Hey all,

Just about everyone has eaten a kebab at one time or another in their lifetime. The small pieces of “melt-in-mouth” meat/fish/vegetables are too delicious to be avoided or ignored.

Chicken malai Kebabs, the name itself brings water in my mouth. They are smooth and succulent and literally melt in the mouth. Chicken Malai Kebab is simply irresistible. 
Learn how to make Chicken Malai Kebab by following this simple & easy recipe.


  • 1 kg Boneless and skinless Chicken breasts and thighs cut into 2cm (4/5 inch) pieces
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp Yogurt
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Cream
  • 3-4tbsp Cashew paste
  • 2tsp Ginger paste
  • 2tsp Garlic paste
  • Black pepper 1tbsp
  • 2 green finger chillies, finely chopped
  • Cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • Salt according to taste
  • Butter
  • Sprinkle lemon juice and salt over the chicken pieces and set aside.

  • After half an hour add yogurt, fresh cream, cashew paste and ginger-garlic paste to the chicken pieces and mix well. Rub mixture onto the chicken pieces well. You can add mace, nutmeg powder too if you want.

  • Now refrigerate it overnight. I marinated it for a whole 24 hours because I prepared it on gas.

  • Now take a non stick and add a little bit of butter. Just a little.
  • Start frying the chicken pieces on low-medium heat. Cover up.

  • Halfway through cooking, turn the pieces and sprinkle the grated cheese from top. Cover up. Keep the heat low. You don’t have to deep fry them.

  • Pierce a fork to see if it has softened and well cooked.
  • Remove, place on a tissue and then transfer to the serving plate.

Serve hot with Parantha or roti... :D
