1 cup fresh yoghurt (should not be sour)
1 cup finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
2 tbsps ginger paste
3 tbsps garlic paste
3-4 tbsps garam masala
6 peppercorns/ 2 dry red chillies
3 tbsps lime/ lemon juice
1/2 tsp orange food coloring
1 kg chicken (breast or thigh) skinless and cut into 2" chunks
1 large onion cut into very thin rings
Lime/ Lemon wedges to garnish
1 tsp Chaat Masala (available at most Indian Spice Shops)

Grind the chopped coriander (keep some aside for garnishing) and all other marinade ingredients (except yoghurt) to a smooth paste in a food processor.
Pour the above mix into a large bowl and add yoghurt. Mix well. Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Cover the bowl and refrigerate. Allow to marinate overnight.
Thread the chicken onto skewers and keep ready.
Preheat your oven or grill to a medium high temperature (200 C/ 400F/ Gas Mark 6).
Place the skewers on the grill racks in your oven with a tray underneath to catch drippings. Roast open till the chicken is browned on all sides and tender.
Remove from skewers and put the chicken in a plate.
Put the onion rings in a separate bowl and squeeze lime juice over them. Now sprinkle the chaat masala over them and mix well so the onions are fully coated.
Garnish the Chicken Tikka with these onion rings and serve.

Jy kan hierdie een in sosatie blokke sny of net ontvelde hoenderborsies vat. Hulle gebruik tradisioneel gewoonlik die bors-kwart van die hoender wat ontvel, maar nie ontbeen is nie. Hy is heerlik as jy hom bedien met roti, slap chips en 'n slaaitjie. Onthou om altyd skyfies suurlemoen by te bedien.
