Introduction: MALAI TIKKA WITH GRAVY ( Creamy Tikka)
This is Charcoaled Malai tikka with gravy. Which I must tell you is finger licking good. It is Made by strips of chicken breasts marinated in Yoghurt and cream along with some spices and lots of lemon juice. Charcoaled with love to its perfection. For the perfectly moist chicken, I would suggest to marinate it overnight. Please try using Greek yoghurt rather than your regular one if you want the authentic malai tikka Taste.
This dish uses only green chili white pepper and black pepper as the spice ingredients. It is normally made using the thin very dark green Indian chillies which are sliced then the slightly fatter and light coloured ones. You can see the type I am talking about on my ingredients image.
