Shish taouk masala

Shish taouk is a typical Persian grill. Shish is skewers and taouk is chicken. Its usually some chicken marinated with yogurt, lime juice, ginger-garlic paste, tomato paste etc. I had some shish touk in hand. Moreover, I always love to try out different recipes Indian style which is usually spicy, tasty, colorful, aromatic and full of flavour. This shish taouk masala would be fantastic filling for chawarma, wraps, rolls, burritos etc. At home, It was preferred to be served with rice, and rasam. Here goes the recipe...

Shish Taouk - 2 nos
(skewered chicken)
Onions - 1 nos
green chillies - 2 nos
ginger - garlic paste - 1 nos
chilly powder - 2 tbsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
pepper powder - 1 tsp
salt for taste
oil - 2 tbsp

Heat oil in a wok, add finely chopped onions, and fry till golden brown. Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for a min. Add chilly powder and give it a stir. Add shish taouk, garam masala, finely chopped green chillies and stir for a min. Finally add salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Excellent way to use leftover shish taouk.

For shish taouk:
Marinate boneless chicken cubes with ginger-garlic paste, lime juice, yogurt, tomato paste, paprika powder or chilly powder, olive oil and salt. Skewer and grill on a charcoal barbecue or electric barbecue ( can even use the oven). Cook till its done.
