How to Make Tandoori Chicken(Oven Baked)

  • Make incisions on the chicken.
  • Smear lemon juice and little salt on the chicken pieces.
  • Keep aside for about 20 mins.
  • Tie curds in a fine muslin cloth and hang for some time, to remove the excess water.
  • 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.
  • Marinate the chicken pieces, in the curd mixture, for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Grill in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C.
  • After 20 mins, brush a little oil on the chicken pieces.
  • When you feel one side is fairly done, turn the piece over.
  • Once again, brush a little oil on the chicken pieces and cook till the chicken is tender and fairly dry.
  • Prick a knife to see if the chicken is done.
  • Serve with onion kachumbar, lemon wedges and green chutney.
