Chicken Tangri Kabab
Chicken tangri kabab is a famous North Indian chicken kabab where only drumstick of the chiccken is marinated in a yogurt-spice marinade for a longer peroid and then grilled . The difference between chicken tikka/ tandoori chicken with tangri kabab is , in tangri kabab , dry roasted grounded chick pea is used along with green chili paste . These two ingredients make it distinct from tikka or tandoori chicken . Dry roasted grounded chickpea can be substituted with “Besan” or gram flour , but that should be lightly fried before using. Tangri kabab has another different version where minced meat is stuffed inside a pocket made in the drumstick . May be next time I’ll try that too .
Though only drumstick or tangri is used , I prefer taking the whole leg, with thigh too . 🙂
6 pieces chicken leg
1/3 rd cup yogurt
2 tea spoon ginger paste
1 tea spoon garlic paste
1 tea spoon garam masala powder
1/2 tea spoon cinnamon powder
1/2 tea spoon nutmeg powder
1 tea spoon green chili paste
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 tea spoon paprika
1/3rd cup oil
1 tbl spoon dry roasted chickpea powder or Besan
salt to taste ( around 1 and 1/2 tea spoon)
A pinch of yellow ( not orange or red) food color ( optional)
Other ingredients :
Coal to give smoke
oil for smoking
1. Make some slit on the chicken . These cut marks would help the marinade go inside the legs .
2. Pat dry the chicken legs with a kitchen towel before you marinate . Now Marinate with all the ingredients mentioned above . Give coal smoke . For giving coal smoke , take a burning coal in an aluminium foil cup and place it on the bowl of the chicken . Put some oil over the burning coal and cover the entire bowl with a lid . Keep it like this for 10 minutes . Marinate the chicken for at least 12 hours . The more , the better . I did almost 20 hours . Cover the bowls with cling film or plastic and keep in the refrigerator.
3. Pre-heat the oven to 400 FH and bake the chicken for 20 minutes . Then broil another 15-20 minutes .
Enjoy with naan , paratha and raita .. 🙂
1. Fry the besan for few minutes until fragrant , but please don’t over fry it . It would make the chicken taste bitter .
