I love to eat malai boti and malai tikka more than the traditional chicken tikkas because it has a very few amount of spices and I love when it just melts in my mouth and I just cant resist to have this dish. I can wait to make this for my tomorrows dinner party and surprise my in laws.

Chicken malai tikka is great thing to enjoy in iftar. If you have some boneless chicken, don't waste it making this and that foods but always make malai tikka or malai kababs. It will provide you an outstanding experience.
