  • 500g boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 cup plain yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • Salt to taste

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 cup assorted microgreens (such as pea shoots, mustard greens, or cabbage microgreens)


Step 1

In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, turmeric, garam masala, and salt to make the marinade. (Add Microgreens paste if you want to sneak in Microgreens for your kids)

Step 2

Add the chicken pieces to the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 3

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Step 4

Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto skewers, leaving a little space between each piece.

Step 5

Brush the grill grates with oil to prevent sticking. Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has charred edges.

Step 6

Once the chicken tikka is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.

Step 7

Arrange the chicken tikka on a serving platter and sprinkle the assorted microgreens over the top.

Step 8

Serve hot with mint chutney, sliced onions, and lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy your delicious Chicken Tikka with a garnish of fresh microgreens!
