Tandoori fish tikka

Tandoori fish tikka recipe

The tikkas are made with boneless meat or fish pieces.You can use any fillets like Basa,Tilapia or salmon.For Tandoori chicken ,curd is used in the marination but for fish pieces I don't prefer it as fish meat is very tender and addition of yoghurt increases the cooking time to a substantial amount which may cause your fish pieces to  disintegrate .
