Red chicken recipe(ketchup, mayonnaise, tikka masala)

Step by step recipe of Red Chicken Recipe with photos of each step.

This is the oldest and most famous chicken recipe of Bohra Cuisine. As, I had told earlier Bohra cuisine varies from region to region like in any cuisine so this chicken recipe is more famous in Pakistan.

I remember, in most of wedding lunches in my childhood, this chicken was most commonly served and yet was always tasty. Sometime, with same recipe mutton leg was also cooked. What I really liked was that every caterer had a unique taste and way of serving it. I have mentioned a lot of garnishing but you can serve few or altogether without any of them. And sauteed vegetables are also optional.

Marination

Some people even marinate it in hara masala( ginger, green chilli and garlic paste) and then cook it in same ketchup mayonnaise sauce. So you may adjust to your taste or copy the recipe ditto. It is very simple recipe for newbies as well.

Chicken Cut

I used whole chicken here but you can marinate whole chicken cut into eight piece (bihari tikka cut) or whole chicken cut into 4 pieces. I will recommend 8 pieces as it allows easy serving, better marination and absolute tenderness. If you are using whole chicken to make it, use small sized chicken.

Other Bohra chicken recipes are Chicken green chutney masala,Kashmiri lal mirch chicken curry, White cashew chicken  curry, Bohra chicken biryani, Chicken bread pie, Chicken roll pie.
