How to make Tandoori Murgh

  1. Wash drumsticks and wipe off with disposable kitchen tissues. Slit twice or thrice randomly.

  4. For oven method : Preheat the oven at 240 C for at least 15 minutes. Grease a foiled baking tray. Pick up the drumsticks and let the extra marinade drip off to the bowl. Place them on the baking tray and baste with the prepared oil lightly.
  5. Grill for 15 minutes, baste again with the oil and back to the oven. Flip the drumsticks and repeat the basting and bake for 10 -15 minutes, depending on your oven and chicken.
  6. To give a real tandoori flavor, burn a char coal and place it on a plate, beside the plate place the grilled chicken and cover all these with a large utensil and leave it for about 3 to 4 minutes. You get the flavor of char coal grilled chicken.
