Tandoori Chicken Lollipop

Learned a new trick on the Internet to marinate the chicken with buttermilk  to get the juicy succulent chicken the next day. Did the same with some chicken lollipop overnight. Next day marinated the soaked chicken pieces with Tandoori masala and finally grilled them over a open tawa. Voila, lovely tandoori chicken lollipop is born.


  • Chicken Lollipop - 500 gms
  • Curd - 100 gms
  • Tandoori Masala - 3 tbsp
  • Ginger Paste - 1 tbsp
  • Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
  • Green chilli paste - as per taste
  • Kashmiri chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt
  • Oil for grilling

Add 3 to 4 tbsp. yogurt to a bowl, whisk it. Add 1 ¼ cup water and salt. Add chicken and soak overnight to tenderize the chicken.

Discurd the liquid next morning. In a small bowl, add curd, ginger garlic paste, green chilli paste, tandoori masala, kashmiri chilli powder and salt.

Pour over chicken and marinate it again for an hour atleast.

Put a non stick tawa over high heat. Sprinkle few drops of oil and then pour the marinated chicken pieces onto it. Cook over high heat for 30-45 seconds and flip over. Again cook for 30 seconds. This is to ensure that the juice is sealed inside the chicken. Now lower the heat and cook covered for 30 minutes or till the chicken is cooked through. Enjoy with onion salad.
