how to make chicken tikka

500 gm Boneless Chicken
1/ 2 cup Hung curd
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
11/2 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tbsp Mustard oil /any oil
Pinch of red colour optional
salt to taste

Wash the  chicken pieces and drain to remove excess water.
Apply salt and Lemon juice and leave it aside for half an hour
Mix together all the ingredients with hung curd and marinate the chicken .
Keep it in the refrigerator for 6 hours to overnight .
Remove it atleast 1 hour prior cooking.
You can grill it ,bake it or pan fry it .
I prefer pan frying with very little oil over medium flame .
Cook till done .
For the barbecue feel or the smoky flavour heat a piece of charcoal till red hot .
Place a small piece of foil in the plate /pan with chicken  and place the hot coal ,add a drop of oil and cover it tightly with a lid.
Cover it at least for 5 minutes .
Remove the foil and discard the coal .

Or as I did you could pan fry the chicken and later place the chicken over the coal directly on the flame placing a wire rack .
Place the chicken pieces on greased wore rack and just flip the chicken for few minutes until charred .
Serve hot with lemon wedge Pudina chutney or some green salad.
