Its the holy month of Ramazan in India and Eid is just round the corner. This month long Muslim festival is celebrated by day long fasts. Evening Iftar parties are being celebrated all over the country without any boundaries of caste or religion. In most of the metro cities, Iftar walks have become very common, where you get together with friends and go out to numerous tents and stalls selling mouth watering food. I too was a part of one such walk over the weekend and came home with my tummy more than full. The different varieties of food just amazed me. Here I tried to emulate one such amazing delectable chicken dish called Makhmali Chicken Kebab. These kebabs are made with boneless chicken marinated with cream and yogurt and flavoured with mild spices and cooked in a tandoor or as I did it in a grill pan. Just try this out today and enjoy an evening party snack with your friends and family.
