If you follow me on Instagram (@chefeitanbernath), then you know that I LOVE Indian food! Ever since I was little my mom brought me and my brother to Indian restaurants. I have been eating it ever since I can remember. I love it because it has so many amazing flavors and textures that our Jewish or American food doesn’t.
Chicken Tika is a traditional Punjabi street food. It is either cooked in a tandoori oven or over hot coals. I reacareated the street food favorite in my kitchen!
