Chicken Tikka Kabab

Kabab or cooking meat on slow fire with spices on it is an age old cuisine of many countries of the world, India is no exception. Small chunks of meat cooked on fire has been enjoyed over generations. In ancient times after returning from warfare men would hunt deer’s or rabbits and eat meat by cooking on slow fire. Today being Sunday over lunch I made Chicken Tikka Kabab. Having marinated with yoghurt, various spices overnight, the chicken pieces were tender, succulent, grilled to perfection with red and green capsicums much to my joy. #MadhubishsKitchen
