I still remember my first day of kitchen training as a chef. The very first dish that I learned that day was Chicken Tikka. Since then, this has been a very special dish for me. Over the years, I have improvised this recipe with my experiments and have delighted many with its taste. Simple to make and hard to resist by all chicken lovers, here’s my recipe for the heavenly Chicken Tikka:
What you need:
200 Gms – Boneless chicken cut into tikka size pieces.
50 Gms – Hung curd
15 Ml – Mustard oil.
10 Gms – Coriander powder
10 Gms – Jeera powder
10 Gms – Garam masala
20 Gms – Red chilli powder
20 Gms – Ginger – garlic paste
Red food color – Optional (If you need the dark red color)
What to do:
- Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees and grease the baking tray. Keep it ready.
- In a bowl, take the chicken pieces, add in the mustard oil, hung curd, coriander powder, jeera powder, garam masala, red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, red food color and mix well.
- Once everything is properly mixed and the chicken pieces are coated; spread them on the pre-heated baking tray and bake it for about 18-20 mins or until done.
- Remove, serve hot with a mint and yogurt dip along with some naan bread.
