Transfer all ingredients of green chutney to a blender. Use as little water to blend as possible, preferably just 2 tablespoons. Add the green paste to the chicken and apply it all over thoroughly.
Marinate for at least 30 minutes on the counter or preferably 4 -12 hours in the fridge for best results.
After marination thread the chicken into wooden skewers.
Transfer skewers to a grill pan and cook on high heat for 8-10 minutes (4-5 minutes on each side). Brush little oil on the chicken on both sides.
To smoke, keep haryali tikka in a pot, and keep a piece of foil between the chicken. Place the red hot charcoal carefully on the foil.
Drizzle a few drops of oil and immediately cover the lid. (Lid should be tight and smoke shouldn't escape. You can also put a heavy object on the lid.) Smoke for 10 minutes.
You can store hot tikka in a hot pot or foil until serving.
