Achari Chicken Tikka Recipe


There are different types of kababs served across India, One such outstanding kabab which is always a crowd pleaser is achari murgh tikka. Achari is a pickle spice mix which is freshly ground and marinated in the chicken before grilling. The flavors and tangy taste in this kabab is excellent. I prefer to serve this kabab with southindian style lemon rice.

Once the spices splutter add the ginger and garlic fry for a minute. Transfer the spices to a mixer jar add a splash of water and grind to a smooth paste.

Add the ground masala to the chicken mix well cover allow to marinate over night for best results or can prepare the tikkas in 2 hours time this masala has to penetrate well inside the chicken.

Heat a pan on medium flame add mustard oil and sunflower oil allow the oil to reach at smoking point. 

Add the chicken to the oil fry for 2 minutes on each side the chicken should absorb the oil and the masala will coat the chicken thoroughly.  

Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet place it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes. we can flip the chicken  at 5 minute mark and bake till well done. Serve hot with lime and onion...Enjoy...:)

We can also grill this chicken tikka on tawa/skillet if you do not have oven. If  you plan to grill on coals keep basting with oil and grill until well done.
