  • How to Make Tandoori Chicken(Oven Baked):

    2. Smear lemon juice and little salt on the chicken pieces.
    3. Keep aside for about 20 mins.
    4. Tie curds in a fine muslin cloth and hang for some time, to remove the excess water.
    5. In a bowl, mix curd with red chilli powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder, cumin seed powder, ginger-garlic paste, salt to taste and few drops of orange colour, till you get the desired shade.
    6. Marinate the chicken pieces, in the curd mixture, for 3 to 4 hours.
    7. Grill in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C.
    8. After 20 mins, brush a little oil on the chicken pieces.
    9. When you feel one side is fairly done, turn the piece over.
    10. Once again, brush a little oil on the chicken pieces and cook till the chicken is tender and fairly dry.
    11. Prick a knife to see if the chicken is done.
    12. Serve with onion kachumbar, lemon wedges and green chutney.
