  1. Wash and clean the chicken.

  4. Set up the tandoor and bring the chicken at room temperature.
  5. Mix butter in it.
  6. Now pierce the chicken cubes in the skewers and put them in the tandoor.
  7. Keep rotating at regular intervals so that the chicken gets cooked equally from all the sides.

My Tip:

A little bit brushing of butter in the midst of baking will help the tikkas to remain juicy .
