Total Time : 2 Hr 25 Min


Serves : 5
  • 500 gram bonless chiken

  • 1/2 cup cream

  • 1/4 cup curd

  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon paper powder

  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic pest

  • 1 teaspoon or to test salt


  • Wash & dry chicken. Cut it into bite sized pieces, roughly 1×1 inch. Rub lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, salt and pepper over the chicken. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • After 30minutes, add malai, curd and cardamom powder to the chicken. Let the chicken marinade for at least 2 hours, before cooking.
  • To cook the tikkas, skewer them on wooden or metal skewers and cook in a pre-heated oven @ 220C or 400F for 20 minutes, while basting with oil or butter every 5 minuts.
  • You can also pan cook them over gas flame in a non-stick pan or on a non-stick grill plate (the one I used). It’s important to brush the chicken occasionally with butter or oil to ensure even cooking and avoid dryness in tikkas.
  • Serve the tikkas hot along with a tangy sliced onion, tomato, cucumber, coriander and green chilli salad. A hot coriander – mint chutney also is a popular accompaniment with tikkas
