Palak & Pudina Tikkas

“When I think beer
Tikka comes to mind,
It can be meat or veg
Or any third kind,
Tangy with spices
Numbed with beer cold,
Enjoyed by family
And friends old
At street side dhabas
And smokey eyes
With a treat like this
Who needs fries..”
250 gm chicken breast, cut in cubes
2 tablespoon thick yogurt
1 cup boiled spinach
½ cup fresh mint
¼ cup fresh coriander
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon coriander powder
½ teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons melted butter to coat
Chat masala to garnish

Method: Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the ginger, garlic, boiled spinach, coriander powder and garam masala and cook for a few minutes.  Cool the mixture and blend in a mixer along with the mint & coriander to make a smooth paste. Marinate the chicken with this paste, yogurt, salt, pepper & chili for 5-6 hours.

Put 4-5 cubes of the chicken on a skewer. Brush with some melted butter and grill at 200 degree C for around 10 minutes. Turn the skewers around once, and continue grilling for another 10 minutes. Wait till the chicken is cooked and starts to brown on the surface.  

Dust with some chat masala and serve immediately!
