Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken

I have blogged Tandoori Chicken and Tandoori Chicken on Stove Top, but this is a little different recipe which I followed from Saptha Blog.. This one I prepared on popular demand for a get together and it goes without saying everyone loves it :).  

I was getting late & clicked the picture in hurry; couldn't real take proper pictures so kindly excuse that but rest assure it's a wonderful recipe.  Thanks to Saptha for posting this simple and wonderful recipe,  Saptha also have tandoori masala recipe in her space, check that out if you want to make home made one ...here I use readymade masala.  


Chicken - 1/2 kg
Tandoori Masala - 8 tbsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 6 tbsp
Thick Curd - 1/2 cup
Lemon Juice - 1/4 cup
Butter - for brushing
Salt - to taste 


1.  Clean, wash and slit the chicken pieces.

2. In a large bowl/plate mix tandoori masala, ginger-garlic paste, curd, lemon juice, salt and stir well.  Now add the chicken pieces and mix everything well (if required adjust salt, lemon and tandoori masala).   Marinate for 3-4 hours or keep over night in fridge.

3. Preheat the oven in grill settings, meanwhile brush the chicken pieces with butter and grill at 250C for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.  Brush again with little butter on top

OR use normal oven settings at 250C, brush chicken with butter; line on a foiled baking tray and cook for 15 minutes, turn to other side & brush with butter cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.  Take out the tray and brush again with little butter.

Serve warm with green chutney, chopped onion and lemon.  Enjoy the feast. 

Enjoy your day ~~
