Tandoori Chicken on Stove top

Tandoori Chicken on Stove top

This is again made by sis along with Chicken Gravy.  She made these for starters and these sell very fast, unlike my previous Tandoori Chicken which was prepared in microwave this she had made on stove top but the result was just awesome.
