How to Make Tandoori Chicken Recipe

  • Pre-preparation:
  • In a small deep bowl, add all the ingredients and seasoning except chicken and cloves.
  • Mix the ingredients and seasoning well till you get a reddish paste.
  • Apply the paste all over the chicken.
  • You could cut down the chicken or use it full.
  • Pierce the cloves inside the chicken preferably underneath the skin to extract as much flavour as possible.
  • Coat the chicken well with the marinade and let it sit in the fridge wrapped in a cling film for 2 hrs.
  • You could leave it overnight too and the result would only be better.
  • For the marinade to seep inside the meat, make some gashes on the chicken. This will help the yogurt mix penetrate the meat well.
  • For tandoori chicken:
  • Remove the meat after two hours or next day.
  • Preheat your oven to 250 degree C.
  • Place the dip tray beneath, place the chicken on the wire rack and place it in the oven.
  • Some electric ovens come with the grilling rods so you could pierce the chicken through that or just follow step-3.
  • Let it cook at 200 degree for 30-35 mins.
  • You could cut a piece of the leg to check if it's done or not. If the leg is not pink, your chicken is done.
  • Remove and rub the butter on the hot chicken, glazing it for that extra shine. Serve hot with wedges of lemon and accompaniments.
