How to make Tandoori Chicken

  1. Wash the chicken pieces thoroughly and put it on a strainer for all the excess water to drain. Make deep cuts in each chicken piece. Keep aside.
  2. Mix all the ingredients well, check for the spice level. . Brush this marinate to chicken and refrigerate for minimum 3 hours.
  3. Pre - heat the oven to 200 degrees C for 15 minutes. Brush the grilling tray with few drops of oil to avoid chicken sticking to the tray.
