Chicken Tikka

Hi Friends...
One of my friend blogger Preeti posted this recipe on her blog Indian Kitchen. Her recipes are so simple and yummy.....
I made chicken tikka at home and Boys, It was loved by everyone at home.
Thanks Preeti for sharing the recipe ........


Ingredients:
500 gm chicken  (boneless)
4 tbsp hung curd 
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp tandoori chicken masala (Everest)
1/2  tsp deggi mirch or red chilly powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp garam masala
Salt acc.to taste
A pinch of red food colour




Method:
  • Wash and clean the chicken pieces. (As I used packed one so they were already cut into the cubes). Otherwise cut them into 2" cubes.
  • Whisk all the ingredients for marination in a large bowl.
  • Put chicken cubes into this marinade, coat well and keep in fridge for at least  4-5 hrs.

  • Take a skewer (keep wooden skewer in water to avoid them burnt) and skew marinated chicken pieces.

  • I used electric tandoor for roasting the chicken........ Take the baking tray place the aluminum foil, apply oil on the foil.
  • Place the skewers on the baking tray.

  • Roast them for 10-12 mins, baste with clarified butter. 
  • Turn over the skewer rods, baste with clarified butter and further roast for 5-7 mins.
  • Serve hot with choice of a salad and chutney.
  • Enjoy ..............



Note: 
  • If you don't have electric tandoor, You can cook them on gas tandoor or in microwave too. 
  • Preheat oven on 200 C, place the chicken skewers for 15-20 mins.Cook from both the sides till done.
  • Don't forget to place a tray underneath to collect the drippings.
  • Using Everest Tandoori Chicken Masala added special taste in the dish.
