My first experience in making tandoori chicken. I was very careful in marinating and salt. I got this recipe from my friend. I marinated overnite and cooked the next day, so that the chicken turns soft. My daughter loved it and my husband was 100% satisfied with the home made tandoori chicken. So here we go in to the recipe….
Chicken legs or thighs 4 no
Thick yoghurt 4 tbsp
Tandoori masala (BBQ marinade dry mix) 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Cumin powder 1 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Salt 1 ½ tsp or according to taste.
2tbsp oil or ghee
Take a wide bowl keep under a news paper . Add tandoori masala (BBQ marinade dry mix), chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and salt to bowl, then add yoghurt and oil. Mix well for a few minutes until a thick paste is made. Clean and Slice or make small opening in the chicken legs and thighs with knife to allow tandoori masala (BBQ marinade dry mix) paste to go deep into bone.
Coat the chicken legs and thighs with the tandoori masala (BBQ marinade dry mix) paste and leave for at least 3 hours or overnight in the fridge. I marinated the whole night. Pre heat the oven to 180 °C. Insert the legs in BBQ screws, then cook for 30-45 min or till the chicken turns brown. Serve hot….
