Delicious Afghani Malai Chicken Tikka

With a tangy yogurt marinade, packed with warm spices, creamy nuts, and just the right hint of spice, this chicken tikka is a delicious alternative to the classic fiery-red version we all know and love.


Add the ingredients for the marinade into a blender. Blend until the almonds, cashews and chilli are all completely broken down, and the marinade is smooth.

Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized cubes. Try to cut them in uniform-sized pieces so that they all cook at the same time and do not dry out.

Pour the marinade over the chicken in a mixing bowl. Let the chicken marinate for 20-30 minutes - The longer the better.

Before adding the chicken to an air fryer basket, drain off the excess marinade from the chicken. Spray with cooking spray, and air fry for 12-15 minutes at 390°F.
