Ingredients to make Oven roasted Tandoori Chicken

  • 2 tsps madras curry powder
  • 1 tsp kashmiri mirch powder

How to make Oven roasted Tandoori Chicken

  1. Wash and clean the drumsticks with cold water and pat it dry with kitchen paper towel.
  2. Slit some cuts in the thick part of the chicken so that some masala gets infused inside the drumsticks too.
  3. Add ginger garlic paste and lemon juice. This is the first level of marinade.
  4. Next add curd, mustard oil, cayenne, kashmiri mirch, madras curry powder , cumin powder , black pepper and salt as per taste. Add the cornstarch which is essential for binding.
  5. Mix it well and leave the chicken marinade to rest for atleast 2 hours in the fridge.
  6. Preheat oven to 220 degree centigrade. Grease baking pan or grilled pan lined with aluminum foil.
  7. Add the drumsticks, with the thick side towards the bottom.
  8. Sprinkle some rosemary leaves over it.
  9. Drizzle some olive oil over them. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  10. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before taking them out on plate to serve.
  11. Enjoy it with red wine and savoury chutney

My Tip:

After taking out the chicken from the oven, always allow it to rest on the pan for 10 minutes before serving.
