Keto Malai Kebab Recipe
- Non-stick pan
- 500 grams Boneless Chicken Leg and Thigh Meat
- 100 ml Heavy Cream
- 50 grams Cheese Ideally Indian Processed Cheese like Britannia or Amul Block Cheese
- 10 grams Ginger Garlic Paste
- 2 tsp Ghee For the marinade plus 2tsp for cooking
- ½ tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Black Pepper Powder Try this one
- Juice of half a lime
- Cut the chicken into medium-sized pieces. Cut them in a shape like kebabs.
- Take a bowl and mix the cheese, cream, ginger, garlic paste, pepper, salt, cardamom powder, and lime juice, and mix them all well till you prepare a nice thick creamy marinade.
- Now add the chicken into the bowl and mix it well in the marinade.
- After that set aside the mix to marinate overnight or for at least 1 hour.
- To cook the kebabs, skew them in the skewers, and fry on a cast iron or non-stick pan. Brush with the ghee kept aside for cooking.(Tip -soak the skewers in water for 2 minutes before using them to prevent them burning).
- If you have an oven, you can alternately cook the kebabs in the oven at the highest temperature.
- You can give a final taste to the Kebabs by giving them a char on the stove with the naked flame.
- Serve with chutney, chat masala, and lime.
These Keto Malai Kebabs are quite easy to make within a short span of time, without many ingredients. You don’t need onions, tomatoes, and other fancy ingredients to make it.
Kebab, also spelled kebob or kabob, dish of Middle Eastern or Central Asian origin that typically combines small pieces of meat such as lamb or beef with vegetables on a skewer and is then grilled. Kebab derives from a Persian term for the dish that passed into both Arabic (as kabāb) and Turkish (as kebap). Kebabs are thought to have originated among transhumant peoples in Central Asia, whose meat-heavy diet was transformed somewhat in an urban context where vegetables were more readily available — Britannica.
It just requires some ingredients that are easily available at home. It is mildly but flavorful at the same time. Hope you will give this a try. Let me know in the comment section how it turns out for you.
