The celebrated Tandoori Chicken or 'Tandoori Murgh' is a favourite across restaurants and homes worldwide. This top spicy recipe takes its roots from Mughlai cuisine and there are lots of authentic variations with the different forms of chicken meat being used. Generally it is made using one whole spring chicken or chicken fillets or even only the legs, known as 'Tangdi' in Hindi.
The chicken marinade is prepared with tangy ingredients and masalas - garlic, ginger, white pepper, chilli powder and garam masala.
The well marinated chicken is then finely roasted in ghee and you can relish it piping hot along with anything from plain phulkas and green chutney to something fancy like Arabian pita bread (kuboos) and tasty Mayonnaise.
