I am sure you would have tempted after seeing the picture of this recipe!! It’s a great starter to serve in a perfect dinner, often loved by most of the non vegetarians. Among all the dishes of chicken,tandoori wins the heart of most of us because of its unique grilled taste and crispy layer. From some where I read, I remember the name comes from the type of cylindrical clay oven, a “Tandoor”, in which the dish is traditionally prepared. We could make this recipe by using the conventional Oven.

Coming to the making part, you need to be little planned as the marinating process carried out for overnight or atleast you need to keep it for 4-5 hours. Goes well with Chappathi and Roties.

  • Marinate the chicken with all the other ingredients and keep in fridge overnight.
  • Arrange the chicken in a baking tray covered with aluminium foil at the bottom of the leg pieces.
