Chicken Tikka, a Spicy starter to a meal or dinner.. This indian version of Chicken tikka is really a Hot one.. This is one the popular Starter or Appetizer from Indian cuisine and popular across the world..
Tikka meant for a piece or for a cube, Chicken Pieces marinated in Curd and lime juice to tenderise the texture and again spiced up with masala, for marination.. These marination tooks few hours to do, then in a oven/tandoor/Barbecued cook the marinates chicken and serve.. here i focus for color and i used kashmiri red chillies, you can reduce the spice level, my tikka’s are spicy and really hot in taste..
