Recipe for Chicken Tikka

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken thighs
  • salt
  • 1 cardamom, pod
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced

Cooking Directions

Rinse the chicken thighs, pat dry, and remove the skin. Sprinkle lightly with salt, then let stand while you mix the marinade.

In a mini food processor of spice grinder, combine the cardamom, garlic, and ginger. Process to a fine paste. Place paste in a small bowl or zip top bag.

Add yogurt, lemon juice, pepper and cayenne to the paste, and stir to combine. Add the chicken, toss to coat, and refrigerate for at least 6 and up to 12 hours.

Heat a grill to medium-high. Brush and oil the grate. Remove chicken from the marinade, and place on the hot grill. Cook, turning occasionally, until the outside is nicely browned and the inside is completely cooked, about 6 to 8 minutes per side.

Place cooked chicken on a platter, and top with the sliced onion.
