Chicken Tikka


Tikka means pieces. Chicken tikka is a very simple & yummy starter marinated in thick yoghurt & special spices. Non vegetarians will love this dish. Tomato sauce is the best combination while serving. Today I have made this dish in microwave instead of gas top to save time. Hope you all will like this dish & try in your kitchen & send me your valuable comments.
