Tandoori Chicken - The Recipe for all those who love good food

I always thought cooking Mugalai is one of the most difficult things to do. Thankfully, I have got a very reliable oven that has lately become my best friend. We discuss recipes and help each other is making marvelous dishes.

So, it was another Saturday night. The evening was young and I had my culinary buds craving for something exotic. No, I don't believe in just cooking and get the thing done. I love food and if it doesn't look good or taste good (even if its my favorite) I don't usually have it. 

To cut a long story short, I tried TANDOORI CHICKEN and it did come out well that I almost did not have it. Just how beautiful it looked!


Like some I don't use a hell lot of ingredients. So, its actually simple :)


1 chicken (Cut the way you want it)
1 lemon
1 cup whisked curd
1 tble deghi mirch
1 tble garam masala
2 tsp olive oil
1 tble salt
1 small cup ginger/garlic paste
Red color (two drops mixed in milk)


Make two cuts on each chicken piece
Rub the lemon and ginger garlic paste all over the chicken pieces to make that weird smell go away.
Mix the curd, salt, red chilli powder, garam masala, olive oil, red color together and prepare the marinade.
Rub it all over the chicken.

IFB oven:

Preheat the oven for ten minutes
Baste the tray with melted butter
Lay the chicken pieces on the girll and place it on the tray
Put it in the oven and make it in the MIRCO-GIRLL mode for twenty minutes.

Note: For better results, do finish off the chicken by giving it a final touch on the stove.
