About this recipe

If you ever thought making Chicken tikka is going to be a tedious task - you are soo wrong!! Chicken tikka brings back some good old Dhaba memories for me - when Bangalore actually had some decent ones on the outskirts and its highways. Trip to a dhaba was like a mini weekend getaway with friends - for yummy food, some beer priced economically and served in a separate cottage like table for each guest. This is an easy peasy recipe to make this lip smacking chicken starter dish , that will leave your friends and family asking for more. Do give it a try and post your feedback here!!!

How to cook Chicken Tikka
