Tip:
You can make same recipe in OTG. In a preheated oven, cook chicken for 10 min at 250 degree centigrade. Brush it with oil in between as mentioned above.

You can also try cooking tikka in Non stick pan. Transfer marinated chicken to a non stick pan and cook for 8- 10 min or till masala leaves the oil.
