Kali Mirch Murgh Tikka


Once my husband had these kali mirch ka  tikka in a restaurant. It was so delicious that he loved it a lot and asked me to make it at home. So I tried varies recipes myself. After few attempts, I finally managed to make it.

Tikkas are little bite size meat or vegetables soaked in marinade and then cooked in a tandoor with spices. At home it is cooked on grill pan/tava.
