Mixed Peppers and Yogurt Chicken Tikka

“Marinate em all
With ingredients new,
Chill it good
And do chores few.
As the clock
Goes tick tock tick,
The wonders of time
Create the zing.
Seasoning deep
With a relish tang,
Nothing like a tikka
For that hunger pang.
Out and in
Fridge to oven hot,
This my friends
Is love in a pot.
250 gm chicken breast, cut into strips
½ red pepper, diced
½ green pepper, diced
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons thick greek yogurt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon oil
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Put the peppers, garlic, ginger and 1 teaspoon oil in a food processor and blend into a smooth paste.
Mix the chicken pieces with the pepper paste, yogurt, salt and pepper and marinate/chill for 4-5 hours.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the pieces of chicken till they are golden brown and crisp. Alternatively, you can bake them at 200 degree C, till the chicken is cooked and starts to brown.

Sprinkle with chili flakes and chat masala for garnish, and serve immediately. Makes a great cocktail snack!
