Chicken Tikka

Tikka means bits or pieces,chicken tikka is bits of chicken marinated in spices and roasted in Tandoor.
Since ,we dont have tandoors,we can roast them in oven or grills.After trying paneer tikka,chicken was in my mind for long time.When my friends ,shared me the secret of adding onion paste to chicken tikka,I cudnt resisit to prepare that.Onion paste givs the dish an unique flavor.Today ,prepared chicken dhum biriyani and tikka for lunch.Will post the biriyani recipe soon......



Ingredients:
1.Boneless  Chicken                     -             1 cup
2.Bell peppers                              -              1/2 in each color
3.Onion                                         -              1 ( 1/2 for grinding and 1/2 for cubing)
4.Tandoori masala pwdr               -              1 tbsp
5.Chilli pwdr                                 -              1 tsp
6.Turmeric pwdr                           -               1/4 tsp
7.G & G paste                               -                1 tbsp
8.Thick curd                                  -                 1 tbsp
9.Lemon juice                                -                2 tbsp
10.Oil for brushing                        -                2 tbsp
11.Red food color                         -                a  pinch

Method:
* Cube the bell peppers, and half onion.
* Marinate everything in a zip loc bag or a bowl and mix it well.
* Grind the half onion and mix it into the mixture.
* Keep the marination in fridge over night.
* Soak the skewers in water for 1 hr .
* Arrange the chicken along with the cubed bell peppers and onion.


* Pre heat the oven for 450 degrees and place the skewers on a tray.
* Cook for 20 minutes ,brushing the chicken in between also turn it around in equal intervals.
* At last ,turn it to broil mode for the last 10 mins or until the chicken becomes reddish brown.

Squeeze some lemon juice,sprinkle some chaat masala and serve hot.

Note:
The reason for keeping in broil mode is to make the chicken dark brown color ,quickly.We can also use plain chilli pwdr and garam masala pwdr ,instead of using tandoori masala pwdr.
I love to cook it slightly black, to get the smoky flavor.....but if u want,u can remove it before getting black.
