  1. Excellent recipe
  2. Loved your recipe. Super easy with only basic spices required. I used Degi mirch (Kashmiri Paprika) and a red chilli powder to taste - that added a nice orange color yet didnt make the chicken too chili. Highly recommend the recipe.
  3. 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.
