Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder2 TeaspoonChaat Masala1/2 Teaspoon
Ginger Paste1 TeaspoonLemon Juice2 Teaspoon
Garlic Paste1 TeaspoonCurd2 Tablespoon
Tandoori Masala1 TeaspoonGaram Masala1 Teaspoon
Mustard Oil2 Tablespoon  

Direction To Make

Wash and clean the chicken. In a large bowl cut the boneless chicken into large bite-size pieces.

First Marinate

  • Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon Kashmiri red chili powder, chaat masala, ginger paste, garlic paste and lemon juice and mix well.
  • To marinate well, cover the bowl and set aside for 15 minutes.

Second Marinate

  • Open the bowl after 15 minutes and add curd, tandoori masala, garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon Kashmir red chili powder and mustard oil and mix well.
  • Cover the bowl and keep it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to 1 hour to marinate.

Set Chicken Tikka in Skewer

  • Take the bowl out of the refrigerator and mix again. Take clean and dry steel skewers (you can also use bamboo skewers, but soak them well before use to avoid burning). Carefully arrange the marinated chicken in the skewer.
  • For longer chicken pieces, bend them once or twice so that the chicken sets properly. Set 3 - 4 chicken pieces in a long skewer or according to the size of the skewer and chicken pieces.
  • Place the skewer with the chicken in a large plate and set the remaining chicken pieces in the skewer in this way.

Making Chicken Tikka

  • Heat a tawa (griddle) on high heat. When it gets hot, apply some oil to it using a brush to avoid sticking.
  • Arrange chicken skewers on a hot tawa. Cook the chicken for a minute on high heat. Carefully flip the skewer and cook again for a minute. In this way, cook the chicken on all sides for 1 minute.
  • In this way cook all the skewers and transfer to the plate again.
  • Turn off the gas. Remove the tawa from the gas and also remove the metal frame of the gas. Take aluminum foil and cut a hole of the size of a gas burner in the center and set it around the gas burner. 
  • Aluminum foil will help keep the gas clean. Re-set the metal frame on aluminum foil and remove it. This will install aluminum foil properly.
  • Switch on the gas and keep the flame on medium. Now take half the roasted chicken and roast it directly on the flame. Roast the chicken on a direct flame from each side till the chicken is well roasted.
  • Likewise roast all the chicken pieces in all the skewers.
  • Delicious Chicken Tikka Masala is ready. Remove the chicken pieces from the skewer and transfer it to a serving bowl. Enjoy the hot chicken tikka with green pudina sauce or tomato sauce.
