Chicken Tikka must be the most popular dish and most ordered dish in an Indian restaurant menu card!!
Its also Englands national dish!! So dont you all think its worth a try in your kitchens???
For the authentic flavor one needs a barbecue or a “TANDOOR! which is a clay oven that uses coal. It is the coal that gives the dish its distinctive flavor.
I will teach you how to get more or less that flavor in your own kitchens…provided you have a gas stove!! Its an easy recipe…not much fuss and full of flavor. Yes what you do need is a good TANDOORI SPICE POWDER…. there r some brands which are EXCELLENT and some which leave me wondering….
Anyways, do try this out and the next video shall be HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA….
By the way this is a LOW CALORIE RECIPE!!!!!

1/2 cup of room temperature low fat yoghurt
1 heaped teaspoon of NITU DIDIS TANDOORI SPICE POWDER
salt to taste
