Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: ,

Chicken or paneer tikka is the most popular north indian starter. Its exotic flavour of chicken cubes marinated in combination of low fat yogurt and spices.This chicken tikka recipe is low fat as its made in microwave without much use of oi/ghee.Its one of my frequent dishes.I serve it with salad and lemon wedges as they serve in some of the restaurants :-)


500 gms boneless chicken pieces

For Marinade:

1 cup low fat hung curd
2 table spoon lemon juice
few drops of orange colour
1/2 cup ginger-garlic paste
1 table spoon soya sauce
1 table spoon chat masala
1 table spoon garam masala
2 table spoon tandoori masala
1 table spoon oil for brushing
1 table spoon kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tea spoon turmeric powder
1/2 tea spoon pepper powder

For Salad:

2 cups chopped cabbage
1 cup sliced onion
1/2 tea spoon chilli powder
2 table spoon lemon juice
1/4 tea spoon pepper powder
1/2 tea spoon chat masala


Cut chicken into small cubes.Take the hung curd in a bowl and mix all the ingredients of marinade with it.

Apply it on chicken pieces and refrigerate it for minimum 2 hours or even overnight can be done.

Spread the chicken pieces in a microwave safe tray and place on high rack.Use grill + microwave combination and microwave for 4 mins. Now brush little oil on them and grill for 14-16 mins or until crisp.Reposition in between and apply little oil if required.

For salad mix cabbage and onion slices in a bowl. Add salt and lemon juice and keep for 10 mins till they become soft. Now sprinkle chilli powder,chat masala and salt.Mix and serve with hot tikka pieces.

NOTE: To make hung curd, put normal curd in muslin cloth and hang it for 1 hour so that all the water drips down and it becomes dry.
Add the amount of spices according to your taste buds.

Preparation Time : 30 mins
