Chicken Tikka Malai

Chicken Tikka Malai - Group challenge – by Michael T.

Having tried Michaels way I decided to have a tweak around and this is my version of Chicken Tikka Malia


Step one:
2.5 kilos of Chicken breast cut up into chunks
Juice of one lemon
Half a tsp. of Chilli powder
Pinch of salt

Step two:
1 heaped Tbsp. G/G paste
1 Heaped tbspn. Mix powder
Half tsp. Cumin powder
Half tsp. Amchoo powder
Large heaped tbsp. chopped fresh coriander leaf
One large heaped chefs spoon plain yoghurt

Step three:
100g Mozzarella cheese
100g Strong vintage chedder
One tbsp. melted butter
100 ml cream
5 tbsp. corn flour
3 heaped tbsp. Almond Powder
1 large pinch garam masla

Method:
Mix lemon juice over chicken
Add chilli powder and a pinch of salt mix again.  Leave to stand 15mins.

Add
1 heaped Tbsp. G/G paste
1 Heaped tbspn. Mix powder
Half tsp. Cumin powder
Half tsp. Amchoo powder
Large heaped tbsp. chopped fresh coriander leaf
One large heaped chefs spoon plain yoghurt
Mix and put in a bag and store in fridge for at least 4 hours – I left mine for 6.

Mix
100g Mozzarella cheese
100g Strong vintage chedder
One tbsp. melted butter
100 ml cream
5 tbsp. corn flour
3 heaped tbsp. Almond Powder
1 large pinch garam masla
Together – I cheated a little I melted the cheese slowly in a microwave then whisked in all the other ingredients.
Cover marinated chicken and BBQ or grill. Surprisingly the chicken cooks succulent inside and the cheese – well the cheese has a smoky flavor better than any pizza topping (mozzarella and chedder).

I tried BBQ the chicken then adding the cheese mixture it was equally as good!

Overall I really liked this dish – the amchoo and lemon gave the chicken a slightly sour taste combined with the creamy cheese and a little kick from the chilli – lovely.
This dish could be served up on lemon rice awesome!! I had it on plain rice with coriander green chilli dip.

Note: there was enough cheesy mixture to cover 3 half kilos of chicken easy!

Best, Rich

Hi Rich
Tikka and Cheese what's not to like... Looks great.

Malai Tikka is one of my favourite BIR starters.

Although my take is quite different to yours, I agree, it is amazing how tender
and juicy, melt in the mouth the Chicken turns out. (even with the cheapest stuff)

Good post, thanks for sharing.
cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

I don't think I have ever come across this on any menu, but it does look rather good. It's now on the list of things to try.
