Meenu Gupta
Soya Chaap in creamy gravy, acting as great starter and giving run for money to any chicken lover, though its fully vegetarian.

  • I have used Greek yogurt in my recipe because of its thickness, however you can use normal yogurt, just hang it for 30 minutes to drain excess water and use it.
  • You can marinate for less time, however this malai chaap taste best after marinating for more time.
  • Rather than shallow frying, you can roast them in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes at 180 degree temperature. Then add them into the sautéed marinade.
  • Make sure that this chaap is served hot for the best taste.
