Chicken Malai Tikka Recipe

Here is the recipe of Chicken Malai Tikka, it’s delicious and a treat for non-vegetarians. Evergreen Recipes blog is mainly about veg food, and I post non-veg recipes only when I prepare them for guests or the husband.

Though we have started getting requests for non-veg recipes as well, but the number of requests for veg recipes is much more. I am posting a non-veg recipe after several weeks so I think non-veg visitors of Evergreen Recipes will be happy today.

Chicken Malai Tikka is quite easy to prepare once you do the marination right way which can take 5 hours to 24 hours, but it’s totally worth it. I am sure you will love it.
