When cooking any recipe at home, we always tend to compare it to the dishes we’ve eaten at a restaurant, or as takeout. We try to match the consistency of the dish, the colour of the gravy, the texture of the meat, and so on. Many times, when trying to cook these restaurant-like meals, the recipes are too complicated or the dish itself turns out to be completely different.
What if we told you that, we have a full-proof recipe for the creamiest Malai Chicken you have ever tasted? A recipe that gives you a rich, nutty and creamy chicken gravy, without the complicated instructions or hard-to-find ingredients. A soulful dish that tastes just like it was served out of your favourite North Indian restaurant. Yes, that’s right. This Malai Chicken recipe is simple, takes about 30 minutes to cook, and will probably make you forget about the last plate of Malaiwala Chicken you ordered.
While there is no hard or fast rule regarding which cuts to use for this Murg Malaiwala Recipe, we would suggest using chunkier pieces for more flavour. If you are going for boneless pieces, boneless chicken breast or boneless chicken thigh would be the best option. Else, you can also opt for chicken drumsticks, for a more rich flavour.
This Malaiwala Chicken pairs well with any Indian flatbread or rice dish. For the ultimate weekend family meal, or if entertaining guests, complement your Malai chicken with Burani Raita, Pulao or Jeera Rice. You can also serve it with Garlic Naan or Roomali Roti.
