Ingredients:
  • Boneless chicken cut into cubes – 500 gms
  • Bell pepper (green, red) – 1 each small size
  • Onions – 1 small
  • Skewers – 5
  • Oil
First Marinade
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Red Chili powder – 1 1/2tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Lemon juice – 2-3 tbsp
  • Salt – as required
Second Marinade
  • Hung curd – 3 heap tbsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Kashmiri red chili powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil –  6 tsp
Method:
  •  First prepare the hung curd which is used in the second marinade. By using curd as it is,  water tends to ooze out while grilling. For hung curd, pour the curd into a muslin cloth and tie it around the tap for the water to drip. Since it is only 2 heaps tbsp, it would take less than half an hour for the process.
  • Wash the chicken thoroughly and cut into cubes, medium size. You can use bell peppers and onions as well that is cut into cubes. This is totally your choice.
  • Marinate the chicken  with the first marinade by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  •  Mix all the ingredients of the second marinade in a bowl and transfer the chicken, bell peppers and onions  into this smooth mixture. Refrigerate for at least  2 hours. Best to refrigerate overnight.
  • Put the chicken  on a skewer along with bell peppers and onions. Arrange them the way you like. Remember to soak the bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes to prevent the skewer from getting burnt.
  •  Brush oil on the chicken  and also to the grate or grilling plate, whatever you are using for grilling to prevent the chicken from sticking.
  •  Preheat the oven at 400 F and grill the chicken tikka for 30 minutes; 15 minutes on each side.
Serve hot with Mint chutney, raw onions and some salad. Don’t forget to squeeze some lemon on the Tikka.
