Serves 2-3

Preparation Time = 1 hour
Cooking time = 20 mins


Boneless chicken ½ Kg
Curd  200gms
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder 3 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Garam masala 1 tsp
Tandoori chicken masala 3 tsp
Mustard oil (to shallow fry) 3 tbsp
Lemon 1
Salt To taste
Onion (cut in blocks) 1, for grilling

  • Wash and flatten the chicken pieces slightly with the flat of the knife. 
  • Put chicken, curd, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala and ginger garlic paste in a bowl and mix with your hand.
  • Coat each piece evenly. Cover the bowl and keep in fridge for an hour. 
  • ( Ginger Garlic paste can be made with 1 inch garlic piece and 10 garlic cloves in a grinder)
  • Now heat mustard oil in a nonstick pan and bring to its smoking point. 
  • Now fry the marinated chicken pieces on medium flame till light brown. 
  • Take off the pan. 
  • Put the chicken on skewers, with alternating pieces of onions. 
  • Now remove all the oil from this pan, and place the skewers. 
  • Put in the chicken masala and grill the chicken on all sides, till brown and feel crisp.
  • Plate the grilled chicken on skewers (or without them) on a tray and squeeze a lemon on them. 
  • Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot with green coriander or mint chutney.
  • Note : Instead of frying first, you can directly grill on the skewers or without them. Tastes the same, just takes a little more time to cook.
