Firstly, the following ingredients need to be combined properly in a mixing utensil or a bowl: Lemon juice, Soy sauce, Salt, Oil and Chilli powder.

After an hour of leaving it in the refrigerator, take this mixture and apply it all over the chicken properly. Now, take these marinated chicken trips and insert it one after the other in preferably a wooden skewer. Now, take a pan and put it on medium heat. Put some oil on the pan and let it get heated properly on high heat time. Now carefully place the skewers on the pan(on high heat). The skewers needs to be turned time to time so that the chicken it evenly coocked from all the sides. If there’s any extra marinated mix left that can be used on the chicken at this time.

Some extremely useful tips:-

  • If skewers are not available then, small size of chicken strips can be used along with toothpics.
  • For avoiding the charring action on the skewers, it can be dipped in ice cold water before the chicken are being threaded to it.
  • If you’re the one who’d like spicy peanut sauce, then, red chillies should be added along with the ginger garlic paste and cooked.
  • If coconut milk is not available, then, good quality coconut powder can be added to milk and then it can be used.
