Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori chicken has been a part of my mom's menu. She makes this yummy tandoori chicken on the gas tandoor. So when I got married and started working to improve my culinary skills a gas tandoor was what I was on the lookout for. After many unsuccessful searches on the Internet however, I was lucky enough to find one in a home appliances store near my place. I like the burnt edges that I get while making it on my gas tandoor. It provides it the authentic Tandoori taste like that of the restaurants serving the dish.




Ingredients
Chicken -1 (1 kg – cut into 4)
Yogurt- 3 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Cummin powder( jeera )- 1 tbsp
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 to 2 tsp (according to taste)
Salt – as per taste
Garam masala powder- 1 tsp
Juice of 1 lemon
Method:
Wash and clean the chicken. Marinate the chicken in a mixture of all the ingredients. Keep marinated overnight in the refrigerator. Take out. Cook in the gas tandoor or the oven for 15-20 minutes on each side (or till done). Serve with any of the Indian breads.
