    2. Add chicken pieces and make sure to coat marinade to all sides. Transfer all contents to zip lock bag, close the bag and refrigerate for 3-4 hour (preferably overnight). So that chicken absorbs flavor from marinade.

  1. Hi, just made up some of your tikka marinade and will let you know the results. Incidentally had seekh kebabs as a starter last week at a local Indian restaurant and they were the blandest ones I've ever tasted in my life, just tasted like minced meat. so would love to try your recipe. Think I have been spoilt as many years ago I used to love going to the Kashmir in Bradford (1958) and would think nothing of travelling 25 miles for a bag full of goodies to take home

    Hi Terry, I hope you enjoyed tikka marinade. Let me know if you have any questions. Happy cooking.
