Instant pot Indian chicken tikka boti recipe. Learn how to cook healthy, delicious, and spicy chicken in an electric instant pot. I used homemade Ginger, Garlic, and Green Chili Paste, to marinate the chicken.

Tikka boti is a popular Indian dish that is typically served as an appetizer. Learn how to make this dish with an instant pot or slow cooker, or on the stovetop.

What is Tikka Boti?

Tikka Boti is a dish with a spicy, tangy, and creamy sauce. It is made from Chicken Tikka, onions, tomatoes, and spices.

Tikka Boti is a dish originating from the Indian subcontinent. The word “Tikka” means pieces of meat in Hindi and “Boti” means bread. This dish consists of pieces of marinated chicken (chicken tikka) roasted on skewers (boti). The chicken tikka is cooked in the oven or under a grill before being served with onion, tomato, and cream sauce.

The authentic recipe for Tikka Boti includes yogurt or heavy cream as an ingredient but some people prefer to use coconut milk instead to make it vegan-friendly.

How to Make Chicken Botti in an Instant Pot

To make Chicken Botti in an Instant Pot, you can follow this easy and flavorful recipe. Start by marinating 1 pound (480 g) of cubed chicken breasts in a mixture of 1/2 cup (125 ml) plain yogurt, 1½ tablespoons garam masala, and 1 tablespoon meat tenderizer. This marinade will infuse the chicken with rich flavors and help to tenderize it.

Once the chicken is marinated, transfer it to the Instant Pot and add 1 teaspoon crushed coriander seed for an extra burst of aromatic goodness. Close the lid and set the Instant Pot to the “Pressure Cook” mode for about 10 minutes. The high pressure will ensure that the chicken cooks quickly and evenly.

After the cooking time is up, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release the pressure for a few minutes before opening the lid. This will help to retain the moisture and tenderness of the chicken.

Once the lid is off, you’ll be greeted with the enticing aroma of perfectly cooked Chicken Botti. Serve it hot with naan bread or rice for a complete and satisfying meal. The tender chicken, combined with the flavorful marinade, will make this dish a favorite among your family and friends.

With the Instant Pot, you can enjoy the authentic flavors of Indian cuisine in a fraction of the time it would take to cook traditionally. Give this Chicken Botti recipe a try and impress your loved ones with your culinary skills.

Indian Chicken Botti Serving Suggestions

Once you have prepared the delicious and flavorful Chicken Botti in your Instant Pot, it’s time to think about how to serve it. Here are a few serving suggestions that will complement the flavors of this Indian dish:

1. Naan Bread: Serve the Chicken Botti with warm and fluffy naan bread. The soft texture of the bread pairs perfectly with the tender chicken and helps to soak up the flavorful sauce.

2. Rice: Another classic option is to serve the Chicken Botti with steamed basmati rice. The fragrant rice adds a nice contrast to the spicy flavors of the dish and provides a satisfying base for the chicken.

3. Raita: Prepare a refreshing raita to serve alongside the Chicken Botti. This yogurt-based condiment helps to cool down the spiciness of the dish and adds a creamy element to each bite.

4. Salad: Balance out the richness of the Chicken Botti with a fresh and crisp salad. A simple cucumber and tomato salad with a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt and pepper will provide a refreshing contrast to the flavors of the dish.

5. Chutney: Add a dollop of tangy and spicy chutney to your plate. Whether it’s mint chutney, tamarind chutney, or mango chutney, the burst of flavors will enhance the overall taste of the Chicken Botti.

By considering these serving suggestions, you can create a well-rounded and satisfying meal with your Instant Pot Chicken Botti. Experiment with different combinations to find your favorite way to enjoy this flavorful Indian dish.
