An Easy Recipe for Restaurant-like Murgh Reshmi Kebab
Blend together cashews, almonds, curd and cream into a smooth paste, and mix lemon juice, pepper, ginger-garlic, coriander and salt. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts using kitchen tissues. Cut the chicken breasts into cubes and marinate the chicken with the prepared mixture and refrigerate for about 4 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven at 240° C for about 12-15 minutes. Meanwhile, sew the marinated chicken on the skewers and once the oven is ready, grill them for about 15-20 minutes. Flip them and continue grilling for another 5-7 minutes. Switch the mode to broil and then grill for 2 more minutes to get the charred effect.
Brush them with molten butter and serve hot with mint chutney, lemon wedges and pickled onions.
You can also use cheese instead of cashews and almonds. If you're using cheese, then simply whisk it with curd and cream rather than blending it.
