Achari Chicken Tikka is a spicy, tangy and delicious snack. Chicken cubes are marinated with pickle spice mix and grilled to perfection.

Chicken fillet ... 250 gms ( the boneless leg and thigh portion is always best for tikkas)
Fennel seeds/saunf ... 1 tsp
Cumin seeds ............. 1 tsp
Coriander seeds ...... 1 tsp
Mustard seeds ......... 1 tsp
Onion seeds ............. 1/2 tsp
Garam masala .......... 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder ...... 1/2 tsp
Ginger ............... 1 tsp
Garlic ................. 1 tsp
Pickle .................1 tsp ( take any pickle. I have used home made - GREEN CHILLI PICKLE)
Oil ............ 1 2 tbsps (preferably mustard oil)
Lemon juice ...... 2 tbsps
Salt ............ to taste
Cardamom powder... to sprinkle on top.( you can use chaat masala if you like)


1. Clean the chicken and cut into big cubes.
2. Dry roast and grind Saunf, cumin, coriander and mustard seeds. Mix them into the lemon juice along with whole onion seeds, salt, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt.

3. Crush the garlic, ginger and pickle. Mix this also to the marinade along with 1 tbsp mustard oil. Now marinate the chicken cubes in this for a few hours. The more you marinate, the better it tastes as the spices will incorporate into the chicken very well. Keep it in the refrigerator and remove half an hour before grilling.

4. Pre-heat the oven. Line a baking tray with a foil paper and grease it.
Place the tikkas and grill them for 15 - 20 minutes, turning them once.

(The grilling time varies depending on the size of the check it out)
Sprinkle the cardamom powder before serving.
Serve the tangy chicken tikkas hot , as a snack or ...with naans/rumali rotis.
