Cooking in summers is directly proportional to living in hell. It's like the devil is standing there and laughing at you like he is waiting for your arrival in hell but hats off to the mothers, the sisters and the wives who do this every day. I KNOW YOUR PAIN and very deeply tbh.
With this thought and sentiment I would like to give you another installment of a very quick yet a very delicious recipe.
I have taken this recipe from a blog called The Spice Tales http://thespicetales.blogspot.com/ which is run by Urooba Malik one of the kindest people I have ever come across. Thank you Urooba for such a wonderful, easy and quick recipe.
This recipe is called 'Chicken Malai Handi' and is no doubt one of the best boneless chicken handis I have ever tasted. The original recipe link is - http://thespicetales.blogspot.com/2016/03/desi-all-way.html
1 kg boneless chicken breast cut into 1-1.5 inch bite sized chunks
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ginger paste
1 tablespoon garlic paste
5 tablespoon cream
1 cup yogurt
50 grams butter
1/4 cup water
The process is very simple.
Need to prepare the marinade for the chicken.
For that we will grind the cashew nuts and sesame seeds in to a fine powder.
Now in a bowl add yogurt, cream, ginger paste, garlic paste, salt, black pepper and grounded sesame seeds + cashew nuts.
Mix it up until everything is properly infused in each other like two lovers become one. NO THERE IS NOTHING LIKE LOVE.
Add the chicken in it and marinate it for at least 2 hours.
After the chicken is marinated. Melt the butter in a non stick pan and add the chicken with all teh marinade in it along the water.
Let it cook on medium low heat for 10 minutes while covered.
Uncover it and cook it for 10 more minutes on medium heat.
Chicken Malai Handi is ready to serve.
Garnish it with chopped coriander and green chilies. Best with roghani na'an, roti or paratha, I even had it with a little mutton biryani I made yesterday and it was amazing.
Ladies and gentlemen take a dive with me in this creamy dish called Chicken Malai Handi.
