    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Tikka is the Indian version of shish kebabs. If you want to replicate the look of traditional Indian barbecue, add a few drops of red food coloring to the chicken marinade. Chicken marinates for 3-4 hours. This recipe was created by Steven Raichlen the BBQ King and author.

    Raita

    Chicken

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak six 12-inch bamboo skewers in warm water for 30 minutes. Thread the chicken onto the skewers and set in a shallow glass baking dish.
    2. 2
      On a cutting board, use the side of a large knife to mash the garlic, ginger and salt to a paste. In a bowl, whisk the paste with the yogurt, mustard oil, lemon juice, cumin, mace, nutmeg, cardamom, turmeric, cayenne and black pepper. Pour the marinade over the chicken; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
    3. 3
      Raita: On a cutting board, use the side of a large knife to mash the garlic with a large pinch of salt to a paste. In a medium bowl, mix the garlic paste with the yogurt, sour cream, cucumber, tomato, mint and toasted cumin. Season with salt and pepper and put in refrigerator.
    4. 4
      Light a grill. Lightly oil the grate. Grill the chicken over a medium-hot fire for about 4 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through and golden. Serve with the lemon wedges, red onion, cilantro and Cucumber Raita.

      Beautiful recipe! I only made the chicken part of it and served with 166779 Cilantro Cream Sauce and they went wonderfully together. I marinaded the chicken overnight and left out the mace as I didn't have any on hand. Not spicy at all but with beautiful delicate flavours - oh, and I used hot English mustard for the Chinese variety. Thanks for posting your lovely recipe!

      This was fantastic, and much easier than the amount of ingredients would make it seem at first glance. We thought the kick was perfect, although I had to make something different for my six year old LOL!! Delicious!!
