  • For Marination:

  • Tandoori Masala powder- 2 teaspoon
  • Red food colouring- a few drops
  • Curd- 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Ginger-garlic paste- 3 tablespoon

How to make Tandoori Chicken

  1. Make small gashes in the chicken for the marinade to coat properly.
  2. Dry roast all the dry spices in a pan and then grind to make a fine powder. Also mix the chicken with lemon juice and salt for 20 minutes.
  3. In a big bowl, add dry roasted powder and all the other ingredients for marination. Mix it well
  4. Add the chicken in this masala and rub the chicken, over the skin and underneath it as well. Marinate this chicken for a minimum of 6 hours.
  5. Brush the chicken with oil and grill the chicken on a griller, or tandoor or OTG/Microwave.
  6. If you are using an oven, then set the temperature around 250 to 300 degrees celsius. And grill it for 20 minutes or until the chicken is done properly. Brush oil in between. And flip it after some time.
  7. Serve it warm for best taste.
My Tip: I prefer to marinate it overnight, it makes the chicken more juicy.
