How to make Tandoor Less Chicken Tikka

  1. Like mentioned in some of my posts all kabab preparations are generally double marinated unless done in a hurry. Since we are in no hurry while making this one, we will see how the ideal double marination is done.
  2. First Marination Cut chicken in small 1/4th inch 1/2 inch cubes and in a bowl add all the ingredients except Red Chili powder and Garam Masala/Tandoori chicken Masala and rub well to coat all pieces evenly.
  3. Leave it overnight to marinate in the refrigerator.
  4. Second Marination Add the Red chili powder and Garam Masala/Tandoori Chicken Masala and cornstarch (optional for binding) and leave for 20-30 minutes after it has come down to room temperature. It is very important to apply all ingredients
  5. Now heat a Nonstick pan and add little oil to it.
  6. Add the marinated chicken and cook on low flame for about 15-20 mins turning the pieces accordingly in between so that it is cooked well.
  7. Stir well till it goes almost dry with all pieces having the cooked paste coated on it.
  8. Heat a piece of charcoal on direct flame, now put burned charcoal in a bowl over the cooked pieces in between the pan and add 1 Tbsp of ghee and cover it immediately with its lid. Ensure no fumes come out thus giving the Tandoori effect.
  9. Heat a nonstick tawa on a very high flame with very little brushing of butter on it and put off the flame. Toss 4-8 pieces of the cooked chicken Tikka turning around regularly.
  10. This Tawa fry is done to make the chicken tikka a slight hard outer layer retaining the softness inside.
  11. Fry with butter if u want the tandoor effect else it will take away the smoky flavor and make it more mughlai.
  12. Once the Chicken Tikka is ready, serve it with Mint (Pudina) chutney, onion rings, some chaat masala sprinkled on the dish and a slice of lime.
  13. Best consumed when hot to see smiles on the faces of your beloved ones.
My Tip: The charcoal effect does the trick so ensure that you put the butter right on top of the burning part of the charcoal and cover the vessel/Pan immediately.
