How to Make Nizami Hyderabadi Tandoori Chicken

  • Marinate chicken (make slits on chicken) with ginger garlic paste, lime juice and vinegar. Keep aside for 30 mins.
  • Meanwhile, take a bowl, add curd, corn flour, maida, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, food colour and salt. Mix well to make a thick paste.
  • Strain this paste into a pan through a strainer.
  • Add the marinated chicken and 2 cups of water. Boil the chicken without covering pan till the chicken absorbs all the juices and is cooked partially.
  • Now let the chicken cool for 5-10 mins.
  • Heat oil in a kadai, add 2-3 pieces of this juicy chicken to the oil and fry till red, crisp and golden.
  • Remove and place on a tissue so that all the oil drains out.
  • Sprinkle 1 tsp red chilli powder, black pepper powder, lots of coriander leaves and garam masala powder on the chicken. Serve hot, garnished with onions slices and lime wedges.
