5 MINUTE PREP Recipes Hot SUMMER TIKKA With Cucumber Yoghurt

Everyone loves a good chicken tikka, and this offers some variety from the usual salt and pepper chicken breast meal. The prep for this dish takes just about 5 minutes and I usually marinate and keep a few batches in the freezer. During summer I love serving it with grilled pineapple and yoghurt.


  • 1 kg Chicken Fillet soaked in 1 tsp salt water for a few hours.
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin (jeeru)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chilies
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Chives – to garnish
  • Fresh coriander leaves – to garnish


Remove the chicken from the water and coat with all the spices. Fry, bake or braai till cooked. I usually fry it in a non stick pan with a teaspoon of olive oil or butter. Serve garnished with herbs and grilled pineapple slices and cucumber yoghurt.
