      Hi Beth37,

      The dip I mentioned is called labneh, and I have added a video clip for it.

      Adding food color is not at all necessary, its just to give a better color.

      This looks awesome... did I miss the recipe for the yogurt dip you mentioned? Im sure it is traditional, but is the red food coloring necessary?

      Yes, it has same flavor with sauce and without sauce. But If you want to have it with bread (Chapati or Nan) then you should have some sauce in it, otherwise you can have it without sauce also.

      Yes, the ingredient you mentioned is perfect for making sauce. But don't add corn flour in it. The use of it is to make the chicken outer layer crispy. So in making sauce you don't need it.

      Hope it will help :)

      I have never tried chicken tikka without the sauce, does the flavor become enriched with the chicken, to explain, is the flavor inside the chicken? Like a barbeque flavor becoming one with the chicken.

      To create more sauce I would have to mix ginger garlic paste, chili powder, Chicken Tandoori Masala Powder, Yogurt, Corn flour, salt, and red food color and then do your step of adding oil and cooking it for 5 min etc. is that correct?

      Yes, there will be some sauce remaining. But it depends on you whether you want to use it or not.

      I usually like it without sauce, but if you want to use it, below is the method of using it:

      Take little amount of oil in pan. Put it on stove and add sauce in it and cook it for 5 mins ( Add little water to it, if it seems very thick). Pour it on finally cooked chicken tikka.

      Thanks expertscolumn for visiting and commenting on my hub, you are most welcome to ask any questions regarding any of my hubs.

      After the skewerr I didn't see any chicken tikka masala sauce, isn't there supposed to be some sauce?
