Malai Boti (without BBQ grill)

Malai boti is a famous barbecue dish of Pakistan. Nearly, all the barbecue restaurants in Pakistan serve this dish and people really love it. Its mild, its juicy, its lite and its healthy. I have made this in a pan because we cant use BBQs in apartments and mostly people dont have BBQ grills at home so this is the home version of this beautiful dish. Do try this and fall in love with Ayesha’s Kitchen …..
