Ingredients:

Note: My 1 cup is 240 grams/ml, 1 tablespoon -15 grams/ml, 1 teaspoon-5 grams/ ml and 1 kg  is 2.2 pounds.

Boneless Chicken breast cubes (small uniform sized pieces)- 1 pound

Cooking oil – 2 tablespoons

1st marinade:

Fresh Ginger paste-1 teaspoon

Fresh Garlic paste – 1 teaspoon

Kashmiri Red chilli powder ( the less spicy version of the normal red chilli powder but gives a bright red color) -1 teaspoon

Salt- as required

Lime juice – 1 tablespoon

2nd Marinade:

Cooking Oil-  4 tablespoons

Chickpea flour (besan) – 2 tablespoons

yoghurt -1/2 cup

Kashmiri Red chilli powder ( the less spicy version of the normal red chilli powder but gives a bright red color) -1 teaspoon

Fresh Ginger paste-1/2 teaspoon

Fresh Garlic paste – 1/2 teaspoon

Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Salt-As required

Garam Masala- 1 teaspoon

Steps:

Stage 1:

Marinate the chicken with all ingredients under Marinade 1 and keep aside for 20 minutes.

Stage 2:

1.Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy bottom pan and add the chickpea flour to it. keep stirring till it gets blended well and gives a nice nutty smell and flavor.

2. Transfer to a bowl and mix with all other ingredients under Marinade 2 very well (except the left over 2 tablespoon cooking oil).

3. Now add the 2 tablespoon cooking oil to the mix and whisk well until oil blends well and is not to be seen on the surface.

4. Add the chicken from Stage 1 to this mix and keep aside for at least 2 hours. I keep in the fridge overnight.

Stage 3: Baking

1.Skewer the marinated chicken pieces from Stage 2. I used bamboo skewers and soaked the skewers for 30 minutes in cold water to avoid burning of skewer when we bake.
