  1. Amchur powder can be used instead of lemon juice
  2. Make sure potatoes are not mushy
  3. If you are making hung curd in home, take 1/4 cup of thick curd in muslin cloth and keep it for few minutes to separate them from whey
  4. Capsicum, onion can be added to the marination 
  5. If you are using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least 20 minutes to avoid them from getting burnt
  6. Aloo tikka can also be cooked directly in the gas stove. Place few aloo in skewers and roast them in all side
  7. If you have baby potatoes cut into half and use it but since  I didn’t have small potatoes I diced the big potatoes 
  8. Baking time varies depending on the size of potatoes 
  9. If  you are using hung curd make sure it without any curd whey
  10. if you don’t have tandoori masala handy use garam masala, chili powder, kitchen king masala or any other masala of your choice
  11. potatoes can be inserted in skewers and baked but I generally bake it without that as it is easy for my son to eat 
  12. Spice powder can be mixed with curd separately added to the potatoes. To avoid an extra vessel I do everything together and still, everything is well coated
