Are you ready to indulge in the tantalizing flavors of Tandoori Chicken Tikka and freshly baked Naan bread? Look no further! BDK Restaurant has got you covered with their mouthwatering recipe that will transport your taste buds to the streets of Northern India.
Get Ready to Marinate!
To start off, we need to prepare the perfect marinade for our succulent chicken pieces. Mix together a delightful blend of spices, yogurt, and other secret ingredients. Make sure the marinade is well combined before adding the chicken. Coat the chicken with the marinade, using your hands to ensure an even distribution of flavors. Let the chicken marinate for at least an hour, or if you have the time, overnight for that extra infusion of deliciousness.
The Perfect Cooking Process
Once the chicken has been marinated to perfection, it’s time to cook it to utter deliciousness. In BDK Restaurant, they use clay ovens to achieve that authentic smoky flavor. But fear not, you can still achieve fabulous results at home. Simply cook the chicken in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the juices run clear.
Serve the Tandoori Chicken Tikka alongside a crisp salad or, better yet, warm homemade Naan bread.
The Art of Naan Bread: Baked to Fluffy Perfection
Did you know that the word “Naan” actually means bread? That’s right! This quintessential flatbread from Northern India has been a staple for centuries. Originally from Persia, Naan has made its mark on Indian cuisine, becoming the perfect companion for a delicious meal.
At BDK Restaurant, their recipe is tailored for clay ovens, which give the Naan its unique texture and taste. However, you can still achieve extraordinary results in your home oven. Start by combining yeast and hot water, allowing it to activate. In another bowl, mix together plain flour, onions seeds, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, and milk. Then, add the yeast mixture and knead until you have a soft, slightly sticky dough.
Let the dough prove for an hour, covered with a damp cloth. Then, divide the dough into small balls and roll them out into your desired size and shape. Place the Naan bread on lightly greased oven trays and bake them at 250ºC for just 2 ½ minutes. The result? Soft, fluffy, and utterly delicious Naan bread that will leave you craving more.
The Perfect Accompaniment: Mint and Coriander Chutney
No Indian meal is complete without a tangy and refreshing chutney. BDK Restaurant’s Mint and Coriander Chutney is the ideal accompaniment to their Tandoori Chicken Tikka. This vibrant chutney is incredibly versatile and pairs perfectly with an array of appetizers and snacks.
Whiz up a batch of this fresh and flavorful chutney by blending together mint leaves, coriander, green chilies, salt, sugar, roasted cumin seeds, cumin powder, amchoor, lemon juice, and a little water. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences. If you’re feeling adventurous, mix in some yogurt and sugar for a minty twist.
Serve this delightful chutney alongside your favorite Indian starters, especially the mouthwatering Tandoori Chicken Tikka.
