Chicken boti is so easy and tasty to make at home with simple spices and no ready-made masala. Just 30 minutes of active time for restaurant-style chicken boti kabab.
My ultimate pleasure in this chicken boti recipe is that it doesn’t give you heart burns or the bad morning that you have after having barbecue laden with meat tenderizers.

You can have a look at the ingredients below and they are simple.
ginger, garlic, chili
Take chicken cubes in a bowl and pat dry to remove as much moisture as possible.
Add ginger, garlic, chili, and yogurt to the chicken cubes and mix well. Set aside.
Mix remaining dry spices, lemon juice, and ghee or butter in a bowl and add to the chicken. Mix everything together.
Marinate chicken for a minimum of 40 minutes in total at room temperature. Calculate the time after the yogurt is applied to the chicken in step 1..
To Bake: Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Flip after 10, and baste with oil or ghee. Then broil for 7 minutes until lightly charred.
OR Grill on the stove (Recommended): Cook on tawa or grill pan for 5 minutes covered on low heat, then turn and continue to cook covered for another 3 minutes.
Then remove the lid and increase to medium-high heat. Baste ghee on both sides. Cook for 3-4 minutes until charred. Flip as needed. Watch the video for both methods!
Serve immediately, or you can smoke for 2 minutes with red hot charcoal and a drizzle of oil and serve.
