Hi there all of you. I know I have been away for a long time, with sporadic blogging. Blame it on my home connection conking off, n the MTNL guys (sarkari) never being able to come & repair it, n the datacard being too painfully slow & now I am ill. I feel really terrible wiht the season switching to winters, n me getting the allergy attack!! N to top it off, I have been tooo tooo lazy to go visit my Homeo Doc, who can cure me quickly, but just cant bring myself to go sit there....I guess I will go today itself, coz I cant take it anymore!!
Meanwhile I am posting a wonderful recipe for Reshmi Kebabs. Lovely healthy snacks.
1/2 kg boneless chicken cut into bit sized pcs.
2 tspn ginger-garlic-chilli paste (add about 4/5 green chillies into the grinder while putting ginger & garlic)
4 tbspn - thick curd
2 tbsp butter
6 tbsp besan / gramflour
Half cup cream- you can use any variety, but preferably the heavy one.
2 tsp pepper powdered
4/5 flakes of cardamom powdered
1/2 cup cheesespread
Use the fork to punch the chicken in a few places, so that the marinade goes well into the chicken.
Marinate the chicken with ginger/garlic/chilli paste, the curd & salt for 1 hour. If you dont want it to be spicy you can avoid putting the chilli during grinding.
Heat butter in a kadai (preferably non-stick)
Add besan and stir till the oil separates from the flour. You can add some haldi if you want to give the kebabs a nice yellow colour, if you want to let it remain whitish then omit the haldi.
Beat the cream till no lumps are there.
Remove from heat add cream , cheesespread, pepper powder, egg and cardamom powder . Mix till it forms a very smooth paste.
Now remove the marinated pcs of chicken from the ealier dish. Leave aside any water of any other residue from the earlier marination.
Add the new marinade & ensure that the pcs are coated very well.
Set aside for 2 hours.
You can either skewer the chicken and grill on charcoal
Or put the pcs on a cookie tray, grease it & bake it in a hot oven, turning the pcs till they are done & cooked well.
You can use the grill option if you have that in your oven.
Serve with green chutney
I really wish somebody would prepare this for me, & send it across. How I wish I had the energy.
Dont have a photo yet, will do so next time when cooked.
