Baked Chicken Tikka for the perfect Desi meal

Chicken Tikka

Are you a Kabab lover? Do you love Tandoori rotis, naan, tikkas? Then, this recipe is for you! Read on as we tell you how to make the most delicious chicken kababs at home with less oil, baked and filled with flavor! We tried this during the lockdown phase when we were craving for some good North Indian food and loved the outcome. We had chicken kababs and veg kababs for three days straight with roti and daal. Doesn’t get more desi than this, does it? Let us learn how you can make these at home too:


250 gms boneless chicken

4-5 tbsp Yogurt(hung curd)

1 tbsp ginger garlic paste

Half of a lime

1 tbsp salt

½ tsp mustard oil or regular oil

Red chilli powder – ½ tsp

Turmeric Powder/Haldi- ½ tsp

Dhaniya Powder – ½ tsp

Chaat Masala – ½ tsp

Aamchoor Powder – ½ tsp

Jeera Powder – ½ tsp

Garam Masala Powder – ½ tsp

Veggies of choice for the tikka.


  1. In a bowl, mix the yogurt with the chicken thoroughly.
  2. Add the ginger garlic paste, lime, oil and mix
  3. Add the salt, spices and mix.
  4. Add in the veggies to the same mix. We used capsicum, onion and tomato cut in big pieces for a tikka.
  5. Let this mix marinate for 1 hour-1.5 hours.
  6. If you are using bamboo sticks for the tikka, put them in water for 20-25 minutes before baking.
  7. Assemble the tikkas on the sticks with the marinated chicken and veggies. Brush with butter or oil before baking.
  8. Oil a baking tray , put it on a stand with aluminium foil and bake at 200 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Turn the tikkas after 15 minutes to the other side.
  9. The tikkas are baked and done! If you want, you can roast the sides on gas flame for a charred after effect
  10. Serve with rice or roti and enjoy!
