Hhhm, I wonder what "1 Lime Juice" means in the ingredient list? The juice of 1 lime or 1 tsp lime juice?

I used juice of one lime and I think I saw this on the actual video on youtube. It does not overpower, I couldn't tell the difference between this or lemon. In the whole, I think lasan results in better tikka, YMMV.

Ok, I tried this today but I did two things differently: I only used chicken breast and I only marinated for 9 hours. Apart from that I followed the recipe exactly.

My verdict? Overrated. The chicken breast came out beautiful looking, moist and tender but the taste didn't blow me away, really. There's something about it that I don't like very much - maybe it's the mustard oil which I did temper as some members have advised and as I saw on some blogs about traditional indian cuisine. I think that CBM's/Mick's Tikka using Patak's pastes or CA's Tikka made from scratch are both better. Blade1212's, too, representing the 'no-yoghurt' camp. Not much, but still better. Yes, I am mixing up Tandoori and Tikka but to me it's almost the same. Call me an idiot, if you want.

I won't make this again.

It's a shame it didn't work for you SC. I had mine marinating for 2-3 days and, I only used breasts as well. The only things I didn't use was black salt and white pepper.

Well, maybe the black salt spoiled it for me. There are so amny good recipes out there, though, I don't think this can get so much better.
