Chicken Tikka

Chicken tikka is famous all over the world.It is traditionally made by baking chicken pieces using skewers in a tandoor-which is a clay-based oven.In some places it is also grilled over red hot coal...I made these tikkas in our microwave with grill option and it was simply delicious :)

Ingredients -
boneless chicken (200gm)
lemon juice(2-3 tspns)
red chilly powder(1-2 tspns)
curd(1 tspn)
ginger-garlic paste
turmeric powder
coriander powder
cumin powder
garam masala powder

Method -
Wash and chop the chicken to small pieces.
Mix together lemon juice,red chilly powder and salt.
Apply this first marinade to the chicken.
Now mix the following ingredients to make the second marinade : oil(1tspn),curd,ginger-garlic paste,turmeric powder,red chilly powder,coriander powder,cumin powder,garam masala powder and salt.Apply it to the chicken.
Refrigerate it for 5-6 hours or overnight.
Preheat the microwave to 180deg.
Sprinkle some oil on the chicken.
Grease the grill stand with oil.Keep the chicken on the stand.
Set the grill option for 10min.
Turn the chicken pieces on the other side,sprinkle oil and again grill for 10min.
Serve the grilled tikkas with onion rings and lemon wedges :-)
