Chicken Malai Tikka

One of my friends made this tikka for a get together and it was delicious….I asked her for the recipe and she generously shared it with me….I made a few changes in the recipe she gave and the result was a very flavorful and juicy chicken tikkas….We barbequed the chicken as it’s a US tradition to grill on the 4th and we thought to enjoy the day, the American way…..But you can cook it in a oven too…..Do give this recipe a try…Thanx Puja for sharing this wonderful recipe….So here is the recipe….
