Microwave Chicken Tikka

Microwave chicken tikkas are very easy to prepare  and tasty too. It just needs 2 hours marination but cooks within 6  minutes. Tasty as a side dish and also perfect for a filling in wraps.I prefer using chicken thighs rather than breast as the thigh meat is soft and succulent.

You need:
Chicken thighs(boneless)           300gms
Garlic paste                              1/2tsp
Ginger paste                             1/2tsp
Chilli powder                            1/2tsp
Jeera powder                            1/4tsp
Thick curd                                1/2cup
Kashmiri chilli powder              1tsp
Kasuri methi                             1/2tsp
Tandoori colour
Maida                                      1tsp


Clean the chicken thighs and cube them.
Mix the curd, ginger, garlic paste, salt, chilli powder, kashmiri chilli powder, jeera, kasuri methi,tandoori food colour, maida and marinate the chicken thighs in the mixture for 1-2hours.
Apply little oil on a microwave plate,Place the chicken pieces on the plate with the fleshy parts to the outside leaving the extra marinate behind. Dribble some oil.
Micro high for 4 minutes. Turn the pieces and dribble some oil and micro high for 3 minutes. Let it stand for 1-2 minutes and test. If needed micro high for a minute. (this depends on the size and moisture content of the chicken)
Serve hot!


Quick & mouthwatering starter...
