Murg malai kebab is a tender and creamy grilled chicken. I love kebabs and tandoori dishes. I always enjoy making tandoori dishes. This recipe was in my mind from quite long time and finally made on last weekend. It was so yum and tasty. I always prepare large quantity of tandoori chicken or other grilled dishes in my charcoal grill, for our whole family.they every time turns so good and I receive lot of complements from my family.  But when we are only 4 members at home I always make small quantity in my oven and give them a charcoal smoke for real flavor of tandoor.

I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.

Boneless chicken : 500 grams
Ginger garlic paste : 1 table spoon
