As we plan our holiday menu, we look for new and unique dishes to featur on the table. The dishes we feature must be very rich and flavorsome to keep with the festive theme. Thus, I made this unique coconut creamy chicken kababs, no onion, garlic and ginger is to be used here; a little twist in my regular kababs. A very flavorful dish, delicious appetizer, once you have it, will surely want more.....truely fall love on it.
500 gm Boneless Chicken, Cut into 1”X1” cubes (cleaned & washed)
¼ Cup Thick Curd / Plain Yogurt
½ Cup Freshly Grated Coconut
¼ Cup Warm Water
3 Green Chilies
50 gm Cashew Nut Paste
½ tsp Freshly Pounded White Pepper
2 tbsp Sattu (roasted gram flour)
Salt to Taste2 tsp Melted Butter
1/4 tsp Chaat Masala (optional)
Few Bamboo Skewers (soaked in water for 3-4 hours
Grind curd, grated coconut, warm water and green chillies together. Blend for a minute or two. Now coconut cream is ready. Set it aside.
Combine chicken pieces, cashew nut paste, sattu, coconut cream, white pepper and salt, mix thoroughly. Keep marinated chicken in refrigerator for atleast 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 220 C for 10 minutes. Thread the 2-3 chicken pieces into a skewer. Arrange the skewers on the baking tray. Brush chicken with little butter and bake for 10 minutes. Flip the other side of the kababs, again brush the melted butter and bake for another 8 minutes. Take out the baking tray from the oven.
Sprinkle chaat masala on the top and serve warm with onion rings, any spicy sauce or chutney.
