Green Chicken Kebabs with Cottage Cheese – Hariyali Murgh Paneer Tikka

Nothing makes me happier than when my family enjoys a meal I prepare for them.

Yesterday I made these yummy kebabs with some Chapathi (Indian flat bread) and simple coleslaw salad.

My daughter had asked for some leftovers before dinner time and so I fed the girls. Dinner would be just My husband and I tonight! As my husband came home and was having his dinner, My eldest came and peered into the dishes. “This isn’t what we had!”, she said.

I asked her if she’d like some and she sat down to eat with us. I was having mine as a wrap with the chicken and salad inside the bread. I didn’t think she’d ever have the salad, so I gave her the chicken only.

She asked to have a bite from my plate. “Give me the chicken with the cabbage! I like it!”

I was surprised and happy. So I made a note in the back of my head,”Next time serve these as a wrap with coleslaw, chopped roughly)

Incorporating the cottage cheese (paneer) into the marinade, really gives a lucsiously moist kebab. These can be made on the stove top without an oven or ‘Tandoor’.
