Grilled Masala Chicken

An easy recipe to make Chicken Tikka without prior preparation. I didn't have time to marinate the chicken. So I decided to cook the chicken for a bit in the marinade.

Ingredients :
Chicken : 500 grams
Onions : 3 Medium
Ginger : 1 inch
Garlic : 5 Cloves
Green Chilli : 4
Almonds : 8-10
Cashew Nuts : 8-10
Cumin Seeds : 1 tsp
Dhaniya Powder : 1 tbsp
Garam Masala : 1 tbsp
Tandoori Masala : 1 tbsp
Yogurt : 3-4 tbsp
Salt : To taste
Oil : 2 tbsp

Recipe :

Soak almonds and cashews for 15 minutes in warm water.

Grind onion, green chilli, coriander leaves, ginger, garlic, almonds and cashews in a paste.

Heat oil in a wok. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add the onion paste and saute till the paste turns light brown. Now put the salt, coriander powder, garam masala and tandoori masala. Saute till the oil leaves the side. Add the yogurt and saute for 2-3 minutes more. Now add the chicken and stir well till all the chicken is coated with the masala. Cook for another 4-5 minutes or till the masala is completely dry and sticks to the chicken. Remove from flame.

Preheat oven. Place the Chicken coated with the masala on the baking tray. Grill on 220C for 15 minutes. Now turn the chicken pieces over and grill for another 15 minutes. the chicken should be grilled to brown on both sides. Remove from oven.

Garnish with onions, lemons and coriander leaves and serve hot.
