Tandoori chicken Chicken

Tandoori chicken is one of the specialties of the famous Punjabi cuisine. This mouth watering chicken dish is popular not only in Punjab but all over India as well as abroad. Tandoori chicken comes from a class of tandoori recipes, which are named so because they are made in a special oven made of clay called Tandoor. The dish can be compared to barbecue chicken.

The flavor of the chicken dish comes from the type of marination used. The marination method requires the use of yogurt mixed with a mixture of spices called garam masala.

The recipe of making tandoori chicken is as follows. After the chicken is skinned and cleaned, incisions are made at the leg and breast so that the masala is able to seep in. The pieces are then rubbed with salt, chilly and lime juice and kept aside for 30 mins. In strained yogurt, garam masala, mustard oil, salt, lime juice, chilli powder, ginger and garlic paste is mixed. This will be the marinate. Apply it generously over the pieces and put in under refrigeration for 4 hours. Next, the chicken pieces are cooked in a tandoor with a temp of around 190-200 deg celsius for 10 minutes. The pieces are rubbed with butter regularly while they are being cooked. Tandoori chicken is served with freshly cut onions, lemon and chaat masala.
