Haldi Chicken Skewers, also known as Turmeric Chicken Skewers, are a delicious and flavorful dish that features marinated chicken pieces threaded onto skewers and cooked to perfection. Here’s a detailed description of the recipe:

To make Haldi Chicken Skewers, start by marinating boneless chicken pieces in a mixture of yogurt and spices. In a bowl, combine yogurt, turmeric powder (haldi), ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala, salt, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix the marinade well until all the spices are evenly combined.

Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and coat them thoroughly. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes to an hour, or for even better flavor, marinate it overnight in the refrigerator.

Once the chicken has marinated, thread the chicken pieces onto skewers. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for about 30 minutes beforehand to prevent them from burning during cooking.

Preheat your grill or preheat your oven to a high temperature. If grilling, place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and nicely charred on the outside. If baking, arrange the skewers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at a high temperature for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Once the Haldi Chicken Skewers are cooked, remove them from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and the flavors to intensify.

Serve the Haldi Chicken Skewers hot, garnished with fresh cilantro or mint leaves. They can be enjoyed as an appetizer, a main course, or as part of a larger meal. Accompany them with mint chutney, yogurt dip, or a squeeze of lemon juice for added freshness and tanginess.

Haldi Chicken Skewers are known for their vibrant yellow color from the turmeric, and they offer a delightful combination of spices and flavors. The turmeric provides not only a vibrant hue but also adds a distinct earthy flavor to the chicken. It’s a popular dish in many South Asian cuisines and is loved for its simplicity and delicious taste.
