Frequently Asked Questions
How different is chicken tikka from chicken tikka masala?
In chicken tikka, the chunks are roasted or grilled, making it a dry dish, whereas chicken tikka masala is a spiced curry containing roasted, marinated chicken chunks.
What is the key to making perfect soft chicken tikka at home?
Achieving super-soft chicken tikka depends on the portions of chicken and ingredients used for making the dish. The key here is to use hung curd instead of regular curd as it isn’t watery and portions of breast or thigh area as they absorb the marinade well.
How do I avoid chicken tikka pieces from sticking to each other when cooking?
Always brush some oil (preferably mustard oil) on your chicken tikka after placing them on the grill. This way, the tikka pieces do not stick to each other or the grill, plus the oil also adds a smoky glaze to the tikka pieces.
