Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Tandoori Chicken

I simply love tandoori chicken, which Punjabi in this world doesnt for that matter which chicken eating soul doesn’t, the delectable flavor of the coal and masalas together makes for a heavenly combination however at home its a tad difficult if u have a bar-be-que setup ready always. We do have a bar-be-que but N is just too lazy to setup it up so I have found the next best alternative to it… Put it in my humble oven

What I used

  • 500gms of chicken (I used leg pieces u can use anything)
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

For the marinade

  • 1/2  cup hung curd
  • 1/2 tsp chilli pwd (cut this out if u don’t want it very spicy)
  • 1-2 tsp tandoori masala (depending on how spicy u want ur chicken)
  • 1  tbsp of ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp of garlic past
  • 1 tsp  garam masala powder

How I made it

  • Wash and cut chicken well and make a couple of cuts in chicken. Mix red chilli powder in lemon juice and rub well on the chicken, Leave aside for 15-20 minutes
  • Mix all the ingredients for the marinade mix chicken in it and keep aside for atleast 4 hours
  • Cook in tandoor, bar be que or roast in the top rack of a preheated oven at 200 C for abt 10 minutes, Take it out bast with butter or ghee and roast again for 5 mins till nicely golden brown
  • And dig in as soon as possible 🙂

    Yum..Who doesnt love Tandoori chicken:).Pretty much make it the same way. And oh as you already I know I loved the Nutella cupcakes. I used about 1 and 1/4 cup of apple sauce and love the idea of whole wheat baking:).Once you get used to the texture its an absolute winner!
