Any recipe of chicken makes me crazy, specifically when its all about the starters. Yumm whenever we visit restaurents I do order somthing which is of dry and spicy and one among them is the chicken tikka. Its got a unique taste of grilled flavour when its being marinated with yogurt along with Indian spices that ends up into a heavenly awesome appetizer. Its best to have during summer days when the same is prepared under bbq process. We had great time having chicken tikka with cheessy pastas for dinner and I felt really good, specially when my daughter said she just loved it. Veggie people can follow the same instruction with eggplant and cauliflower.


1 pound Chicken thighs boneless.

1/2 Cup Yogurt.

1 1/2 tbsp Garlic paste.

1 tbsp Ginger paste.

2 tsp Chilli Powder.

1 tsp Turmeric powder.

2 tbsp Chicken masala.

Pinch of Red colour (optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste.

1 tbsp Oil.

Pinch of Chaat masala.


Clean and wash the chicken pieces and cut them into medium sized chunks. Place the cut pieces on tissue to remove the excess water. Also soak skewers in water for 5 min before use to avoid the burning smell of them.

In a bowl add yogurt and rest of the ingredients one by one except chaat masala.

Add the chicken piece and let it sit for 1 hour in fridge.

After 1 hour, preheat oven under grill section on medium temperature.

Put the marinated chicken chunks on skewers and place them on the tray. Drizzle with some oil and turn occasionally until its well cooked all over the sides.

Sprinkle with some chaat masala on top and Serve hot with shredded cabbage and onions.
