Ingredients :
Raw Papaya
Boneless Chicken Thighs ( 350 gms )
Corn Flour ( 2 1/2 -3 tablespoon )
Cream ( 5 tablespoons )
Thick curd/yoghurt ( 3 tablespoons )
Mozzarella Cheese / Processed cheese ( 40-50 gm )
Black Pepper ( 2 tsp )
Salt to taste
Cumin powder ( 1/2 tsp )
Ginger Garlic Paste ( 1 1/2 tsp )
Cardamom powder ( 1/8 tsp or a bit more )
Vegetable oil ( 1 tsp )

You will also require :
Wooden Skewers

Directions :
Cut the chicken thighs into bite size pieces and wash them. Gring the raw papa and make a paste out of it. Now marinade the chicken with this paste for about an hour.

This will help tenderize the chicken so that you get that melt in the mouth texture afterwards.  While the chicken is getting marinated, into another bowl, grate the cheese and add into a bowl. Mash the cheese a little with your palms.  Now stir in the yoghurt and mix until you get a smooth consistency ( without any lumps ). If you still feel lumps, heat in the microwave for another 20-30 seconds and stir again. Make sure you dont burn the mixture, just heat a little to make the cheese melt. Let it cool down. To this add the salt, pepper, cardamom powder, cumin powder, cream and cornflour and stir again until smooth. You should get a not too thick and not too runny consistency marinade. If you feel that the batter is too thick, add some oil to this batter.
After an hour, wash the chicken away and dry all the moisture off using a kitchen towel. We need to eliminate all the possible moisture here.
 Now marinade the chicken with ginger garlic paste and some salt for another 20 minutes. After this, add the chicken to the cream mixture and mix well. Make sure you don’t mix too harshly because we have tenderized the chicken and it may break. Soak your skewers in water and leave both of these overnight.
The only step left is to bake these lovely kababs.
Preheat your oven to the highest temperature possible. Arrange your chicken pieces on the skewers and place it over a baking pan. Bake for about 8-10 minutes on broil mode on this side.
  Keep checking in between and if when you see that the chicken is almost done from one side, remove the tray and flip it onto the other side.
The chicken should look something like this when you should flip it. Don’t worry about the marinade dripping off. Bake for another 8-10 minutes on this side on the broil mode again and keep checking in between for when its done.
Serve  hot with some coleslaw for added flavor!
For the coleslaw :
Add half cup shredded cabbage, half cup shredded carrot, half cup chopped spring onions and     a little less that half a cup of chopped coriander into a bowl and mix.
Now to this add 1 tsp of pepper powder, some salt and about 1/8 tsp of sugar.
Squeeze half a lemon on top of the kababs and yes, that’s it. You’re ready to enjoy this irresistable Murgh Malai Tikka!

Ramen Crusted Chicken Wings

Navratri is over and so FINALLY CHICCKKKEENNN!! So, I thought two of my favourite foods, Ramen and Chicken! PS: I used wai-wai noodles because the noodles are precooked and spiced. Trust me, you’ll get extremely delicious, juicy chicken and extremely crunchy at the same time!
Ingredients :
All purpose flour
Cornflour/ Corn Starch
Chings Szechuan Sauce ( Optional / You may use any seasoning of your choice )
Ginger Garlic paste
Chicken Wings
Oil for deep frying
You can vary the ingredients as per your choice, you still won’t ever go wrong with this.
Directions :
1. Marinate the chicken
Wash and dry the chicken wings and add ginger garlic paste, salt and pepper. I added 1/2 teaspoon of ginger paste and 1 teaspoon of garlic paste for 5 wings. You may also add szechuan sauce to this. Mix it well and make sure all the  chicken is properly covered. Refrigerate for about 1-2 hours.
2. Make a batter
Whatever be the amount, depending on how many chicken wings you wanna eat, add equal amounts of cornflour and all purpose flour. Now slowly add water until you get a medium-thick batter. You should be able to dip your chicken wings in it and get it all covered and it should be thick enough so that it is not runny. Now add the ramen seasoning, some more salt and I love szechuan, so I added a good amount of that as well.Mix it all well.
3. Crumble the ramen and heat the oil.
4. Double Deep Fry
The secret to make chicken extra crispy is to double fry it. Dip the chicken into the batter and deep fry until it is light golden from outside. Take it out and drain on an absorbent paper. Dip it again into the batter and make sure to wipe off extra batter from the chicken. You just need enough batter on the chicken to make the crumbled ramen stick to it. Roll the wing into the ramen and deep fry once again until the ramen has turned goldenish-brown.
5. Enjoy your juicy crunchy delicious wings!
