Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 lb boneless chicken, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions: How to Cook Chicken Malai Boti

  1. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, cream, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, salt, and lemon juice. Mix well to form a smooth marinade.
  2. Add the chicken cubes to the marinade and coat them evenly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
  3. Preheat the grill or oven to medium-high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  4. Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the skewers, leaving a little space between each piece.
  5. Brush the chicken with oil and place the skewers on the grill or in the oven. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has a nice charred exterior.
  6. Once cooked, remove the skewers from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  7. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with naan or rice, along with mint chutney and salad on the side.
