I never wanted to make Chicken Tikka, not because I don’t like, because I don’t have BBQue items with me and when I make it on stove it doesn’t cook completely, some raw meat use to be always there… so here is how I do it now:
Shaan Masala (yes, you need it)
2 tablespoon ghee
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon chili powder
Ajinomoto to taste
1. Using a sharp knife, make 3 or 4 deep incisions in each chicken quarter. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and rub the lemon juice into the incisions.
2. Mix ginger, garlic, chili powder, salt, ajinomoto, shaan masala in ghee and mix well.
3. Pour the mixture on chickens, coat them well, cover and leave to marinate for 4-5 hours.
4. Now by using metal skewers, grill it on a very low heat on stove, while grilling give bit of cutting on the chicken and pour little ghee on turning.
NOTE: heat should be low, do give cuts while grilling.
