Tandoori chicken tikka is a popular North Indian dish made with chicken marinated in yogurt and spices, and then cooked in a tandoor or oven until tender and juicy. The chicken is first marinated in a mixture of yogurt, spices, and lemon juice for several hours to overnight. The spice blend typically includes a mix of cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika, and garam masala.

Once marinated, the chicken is skewered and cooked in a tandoor, which is a traditional clay oven used in Indian cuisine. If a tandoor is not available, the chicken can be grilled or baked in an oven until it is cooked through and lightly charred on the outside.

Tandoori chicken tikka is often served with a side of green chutney, which is made with cilantro, mint, and other herbs and spices, and adds a fresh and zesty flavor to the dish. It can also be served with a side of basmati rice, naan bread, or a mixed salad. The dish is known for its vibrant color, smoky flavor, and tender, juicy texture, and is a favorite among many Indian food enthusiasts.
