Cheese Malai Boti Recipe

Creamy and Cheesy Tikka

Cheese Malai Boti is much tastier than any other malai boti recipe. I made it with a boneless chicken thigh piece. Thigh piece makes it more juicy and delicious. I made cheese malai boti two times last week with two different cooking methods.

The first time I broiled in the oven and the second time cook on frying pan with little oil. Both cooking method gave it an excellent result. It goes great with Bundu Khan Parathas and Tamarind Dip (Imli ki Chutney).
