CHICKEN TIKKA

Ingredients:
1 lbs boneless chicken,
1/2 tsp red chilli powder,
1/4 tsp cardamom powder,
1 tsp kasoori methi,
1/4 tsp garam masala powder,
1/2 tsp coriander powder,
2 tbsp lemon juice,
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste,
3/4 cup thick yogurt,
a pinch of red food colour,
salt to taste,
1 onion - cut into big cubes,
1 green pepper- cubed,
1 ree pepper- cubed and
1/2 cup oil.

Method:
Cut the chicken into cubes and remove all the moisture using a paper towel. In abowl take the red chilli powder, cardamom powder, kasoori methi powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder and salt.Mix all these dry spices and add the lemon juice. Now Squeeze all the water from the ginger-garlic paste and add the dry portion to the above spices. Add curd to this and mix all the spices with yogurt to make a smooth paste. Now add chicken and vegetables to this and mix well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
If using bamboo skewers soak them overnight in water to prevent them from burning. Arrange the chicken and vegetables on the skewers and baste the chicken with some oil.
Heat your oven to to highest temperature or use broil mode if u have it on ur oven and cook the chicken for 20- 3- minutes. In between turn the skewers and cook until cooked and coloured.
Make kebab masala by mixing chat masala and mint leaf powder and sprinkle it on the kebabs. Serve hot.

Tips:
When you are turning the skewers in between, make sure u baste it with some oil. This will keep the kebabs nice and juice.
