It is prepared with fresh kitchen ingredients and is super easy to make.

The creamy taste will create a perfect balance with the spicy green chilies and the additional zest of black pepper and lemon.

  • Chicken (boneless) – 1kg
  • Lemon juice – 5 to 6 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • White pepper: 1tsp
  • Black pepper: 1tsp
  • Cumin (Zeera) Powder: ¾ tsp (roast the seeds on a pan and then grind them into fine powder)
  • Green chilli paste: 4-6 chillies
  • Fresh Coriander: 6-7 tbsp
  • Chilli flakes: ¾ tsp
  • Cream: Half packet
  • Garam Masala as per taste


  1. Marinate the chicken boneless pieces in all of the above ingredients (except garam masala) for about 2-3hours atleast.
  2. Once the chicken is marinated, you can either smoke the chicken with a piece of coal (for about 10 to 15 seconds only) and then shallow fry/bake it or just insert chicken pieces on flat-bladed metal skewers and grill them on a charcoal grill. Brush the chicken pieces with cooking oil on both sides.
  3. Once the chicken is done, dish them out and sprinkle some garam masala and lemon juice on top.
  4. Serve hot with yummy parathas, tamarind sauce, mint yogurt and raw onion rings.

Happy Eating!

My foodblog on Instagram, Spoon A Fantasy, revolves around the culinary adventures of a Lahori who is CRAZY (read in caps) about food. I invite you all to my blog and share in my love for food and desire to always find something new to eat.

This foodie who is head-over-heels in love with french fries, fried chicken and waffles, found her passion for photography back in 2009 and since then, she is trying to capture her journey and her love for food. Next to food, my second passion in life is traveling. I love to get immersed in each unique place’s culture and food scene and believe that in order to fully understand the culture of some place, you have to eat your way through it and find out the stories behind it.

My life has always revolved around food and people. Here on my food-blog Spoon A Fantasy, you’ll find pictures and reviews of all my food experiences, travels, hunts around the world and as always, easy to prepare, approachable, straight-from-my-kitchen recipes. I hope you enjoy what you see, and feel inspired to try something new and cook for your loved ones. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
