My fascination and fixation for tikkas will never leave me. Tikka literally means small pieces, so be it fish, meat ,chicken, paneer or tofu… just “tikka” them! You can marinate them in so many different ways and flavor them with spices, or herbs or just turmeric and ginger garlic. Imagination is all one needs… So…this time i had a tub of cream cheese sitting in the refrigerator and i thought i need to do something with it….. I was in a nearby town recently and made a tikka for my freind Mercedes and i wanted to make it home and share the recipe with all of you because it turned out really wonderful, or so they said. So…i put on my thinking cap and got an idea!!!
Methi Malai Tikka is what i wanted to call it…. so out with my amazing bullet…a few ingredients..and i had a lovely tikka for lunch…with 2 rotis 🙂
250 grams of cubed chicken breast
1 heaped tablespoon of cream cheese
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of dried kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
4 green chillies or less, i like my food hot hot hot!!!
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste
1/4 cup of coriander leaves
salt to taste
In a blender ( i used my amazing bullet) add all the ingredients except the chicken and blend.
Marinate the chicken in this overnight and then grill it….
Soo simple…soo healthy and sooo delicious
Do try this out and give me feedback….
