6 - chicken(legs)
¼ cup - yoghurt
½ tsp - black pepper(powder)
¼ tsp - cardamom(powder)
2 tbsp - garlic(paste)
2 tbsp - ginger(paste)
2 tbsp - gram flour
¼ tsp - mace(powder)
¼ tsp - nutmeg(powder)
salt to taste
5 tbsp - vegetable oil
¼ tsp - turmeric powder
4 tbsp - lime juice
½ tsp - red chili powder
½ tsp - cumin powder


Clean, remove skin and debone chicken.
Cut each leg into 4 pieces - 24 tikka in all.
Whisk yoghurt in a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Rub the chicken pieces with this mixture.
Keep aside for 3 1/2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Skewer the marinated tikka at least an inch apart.
Keep a tray underneath to collect the drippings.
Roast in a moderately hot tandoor for 6-7 minutes, basting at least once. In a charcoal grill, for about the same time, basting once.
In a pre-heated oven, roast the tikka for 8-10 minutes, basting at least twice.
Make sure that the chicken does not touch the sides or the bottom of the oven.


A tasty variation of the Murgh Tikka is the Tikka Harra Bharra (Tikka, green all over), made with the addition of mint and coriander paste (3 tbsp) to the marinade.
