Grilled Tomato Chicken

Grilled Tomato Chicken is the third experiment from my kitchen after Grilled Chicken Jalfrezi and Hariyali Grilled Chicken in which I combined the grilling with the curry to produce a yet another wonderful and flavourful variety of chicken. Infused with a lot of spices, the grilled chicken in a flavourful curry.

I served this with Chicken Do Pyaza as a side dish and Roomali Roti with Garlic Raita to complete the wonderful lunch.

Preparation of the curry


For the marinade:

Chicken Thighs: 250 gm
Tomato (chopped): 1
Yogurt: 1/2 cup
Lemon juice: 2 tsp.
Tawa fry masala: 1 tsp.
Kasoori methi: 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

For the curry:

Cooking oil: 2 tsp.
Asafoetida: a heaped pinch
Star anise: 1
Baby onions (peeled): 3
Peppercorns: 1/2 tsp.
Tomato (chopped): 1
Green chilli (chopped): 1
Ginger (grated): 1 inch
Salt to taste
Garlic (chopped): 4 cloves
Coriander powder: 1 tsp.
Red chilli powder: 1 tsp.
Mango powder: 1/2 tsp.

  1. Marinate the flat chicken in all the marinade ingredients and keep in fridge for at least 4 hours for the flavors to seep in. 
  2. Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 200°C and then apply oil to the grill, and keep the marinated chicken on the grill. Cook on 200°C for 15 minutes, checking and turning the chicken, and applying the marinade to either sides, if necessary.
  3. Cook at high for another 5 minutes and take out the grilled chicken and set aside.
  4. By the time, prepare the tomato curry. Heat cooking oil and add peppercorns, asafoetida and star anise. Add the spring onions and let cook for about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for another minute.
  5. Add the tomato, green chilli and ginger. Add salt, red chilli powder, mango powder and coriander powder. Mix well and let cook till the tomatoes start getting soft. 
  6. Add the remaining marinade and mix well. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove cover and add the grilled chicken. Mix and let cook for another 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and serve hot with rice/roti.
