Tandoori chicken


Today I was thinking of making some grilled special item in my OTG  and my hubby has suggested to make chicken Tandoori as we all love eating this tempting item in restaurant. Before I have gone through several websites in order to get the recipe of authentic tandoori chicken and I found various ways to cook  it at home and   it is very easy to cook  in two major steps first by simply marinating it in yogurt and spices and then roasting/grilling it into conventional oven. I made it in its simplest version with chicken leg pieces and available spices and believe me still it looks perfect and  delicious.


Ingredients :

Chicken leg piece           8pc
Ginger garlic paste        2 tbsp
Lime juice                       1 pc
Soy sauce                        1 tsp
Cumin powder               1 tsp
yogurt                             3 tbsp
Garam masala powder  1tsp
Red chili powder           1tsp
Oil
Salt

Method:



1. Clean chicken leg pieces and give  horizontal slits in it.

2. In large bowl add yogurt, Ginger garlic paste, red chili powder, salt, cumin powder, garam masala powder, soy sauce and lime juice. Mix them well to get a thick paste. Now add chicken pieces and coat them evenly with the marinade specially inside the cut slit.

3. Keep the  the bowl covered and placed into refrigerator  and let it marinate for at least 4 hours. Bring it into room temperature before placing in the oven.

4 Preheat the OTG at 200°c. Now place the marinated chicken pieces on the grill rack of the OTG and brush it with little oil and let it cook for about 30 minutes. Turn after every 5 minutes followed by brushing with oil.

Garnish with onion rings and tomato slices and serve hot with green(coriander and mint) chutney.
