  3. Mix the pomegranate molasses, chilli paste, salt to taste and lemon juice.
  4. Pour this over the chicken and rub it in thoroughly. Cover and leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
  5. In a bowl, mix together the curd, ginger garlic paste, colour, tandoori masala and the melted butter.
  6. Take out the chicken pieces from the first marinade and mix in the second. Cover and leave in the fridge for 4-6 hours. Overnight is the best option.

My Tip:

Use fresh juice, garlic and ginger instead of the packaged ones, if you can.. Makes a difference
