Chicken Tikka

Phew!……what a week this has been. Pretty much expected. For some reason days seem to get shorter and busier as we come toward the end of January………However one can always barbecue,even when short on time…..So here’s what we did yesterday at my place! 




Basic Ingredient

  • 4 Chicken breasts/ Leg pieces (as you desire)

To Marinate(Mix following in a large bowl)

  • 2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
  • Juice from 4 lemons
  • 3 tsp red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp oregano powder(optional)
  • 5 tsp chat masala
  • 1 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 cu vegetable oil

*****Marinate the meat for approx 4 hours.It will absorb flavors and grow tender****

Finally set up your grill with hot coals.

Pierce the  skewers  through the breasts/leg pieces

Keep turning the skewers until the meat is perfectly browned.

Serve with puris/parathas/naans/tortillas,& Sliced onions and lemons.

 P.s:This recipe is almost the same as Skewered Mutton Boti Tikka, however the marinating time is halved. Also Papaya that was used to make mutton chunks tender has not been used here. This is due to the difference in nature of the two meats.


The left one has less masala- For the kid in the family

    I’ll stick to this blog the most as it talks about food and the tikka OMG it is so mouth watering to even look at and…… I am craving for it 😦 I LOVED this …..I wish I could take a bite from the screen 😦


  2. Although my blog was started as a place to log my quilting projects it has become more of a journal as my commentors became my friends and I welcomed them into more of my world than just the sewing studio. Also, I am multi-dimensional so an “everything” blog is more fitting for me. I will probably stick to this blog of yours. I have very much enjoyed your random jottings, though! Hugs………………………..
