  • Let's begin with soaking wooden skewers in cold water for 2-3 hours.
  • MASALA 1- Ground potli masala to a fine powdered form. This masala is very aromatic and flavorful but it can be accommodated with any chicken tikka masala.
  • Take 1/4 teaspoon of potli masala and store the rest in an airtight container.
  • Dry roast besan in a kadhai till it turns light brown in color.
  • MASALA 2 - Assemble all the dry ingredients mentioned above.
  • In a bowl add all of them one by one and mix. Set it aside.
  • Assemble all of the above mentioned ingredients.
  • PREPARE MARINADE - In a large bowl start adding all of them one by one - saving besan for the last.
  • Keep adding and whisking.
  • Once you have added all the dry spices - adjust the salt. Do it before adding egg to this marinade.
  • Add egg and whisk it well. Stir in besan and whisk and make sure no lumps are formed.
  • Marinade will be thick almost like a batter.
  • Clean and wash chicken pieces.
  • Add them to the marinade and mix it well.
  • Cover and let it sit in the refrigerator for 4 hours or if you prefer leave it overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Oil a grill and place a dripping tray underneath it.
  • Remove the skewers from the water. Holding the marinated chicken in one hand insert skewers.
  • If you have small pieces, place two of them on each skewers.
  • Arrange them on the baking grill.
  • While inserting skewers; some of the marinade had fallen back into the bowl so let's baste it again with leftover marinade .
  • Place them in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Oven temperatures vary so you may need to place the chicken for longer time.
  • Turn after 8 minutes or when the top part is brown and again baste with marinade.
  • Grill till chicken is fully cooked and evenly brown. Finally baste with butter and grill for 2 minutes.
  • Chicken is all done and ready.
  • Sprinkle chaat masala and enjoy it with cilantro curd chutney.
