Chicken Malai Satay

Satay is basically a South-East Asian dish and there are many variety of it. I was thinking of making some satay for quite a long time and last week found some boneless chicken in the fridge. There was a cup of fresh cream left as well, so I decided to do it on that day itself with an Indian twist

Usually ingredients like red curry paste, fish sauce, sesame oil are mostly used but for me none of these were available either. I made it in my own style and that is some thing like below...


200 gms Boneless Chicken cut into 6-8 pcs

For Marination

4 tbsp fresh cream
3 tbsp curd
2 tsp ginger paste
2 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp kashmiri mirch powder
salt to taste

2 tbsp butter to grease
few rings of onion for garnishing


Mix half of the cream and all other marination ingredients well and marinate the chicken. Place the chicken pcs on the satay stick and refrigerate for 45 mins to 1 hour. Do not forget to soak the satay sticks in cold water for at least 30 mins before you marinate the chicken on it.

Take the sticks out of refrigerator and melt some butter. Brush the butter well on the satay and grill it for 10 mins. Now put the remain cream on the satay and grill again for 10 mins.

Serve hot Chicken Malai Satay garnished with Onion rings. I loved the taste. I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Marinated Beef Flank Steak

Whenever I see people eating a large chunk of beef on TV I really feel to taste the way they do. I have had beef many time but cooked in typical spicy Indian style. Except the Tunday Kabab, I did not feel the exquisiteness.

So I was looking for few thing to try together; good quality beef, a good recipe and an oven to bake it. Finally I could manage all of them and a big thanks to Khokan Molla for helping me to find the best beef around.

Since I got the Oven in my Kitchen, I have been planning to make some nice beef steak and taste it. It was on a holiday and my friends Shatanik and Moloy helped me too. I missed few ingredients and recalled them while preparing the beef. Without their help it would be possible to make the thing right, they brought me those ingredients in time and most importantly I could not enjoy the dish without them. Thanks guys! :)

Here is how I did it...


1 pound beef flank (boneless piece from lower abdomen) sliced into ½" thick pieces.

For Manination

1½ tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp white wine viniger
2 tbsp honey
4 tsp soya sauce
1 tbsp dark rum
5 gms of Rosemary (fresh or dried if fresh not available)
black pepper and salt for seasoning


Mix all the marination ingredients and blend well. Soak the beef slices well in marination and refrigerate for 8 hours.

Pre-heat the oven at 175oC. Place the meat and bake at the same temparature for about 20 mins. Turn the sides in between for once and the juicy steak is ready to serve.
