Tandoori Chicken

Tuesday, March 16, 2010


Chicken Drumsticks - 2 lbs (about 6-7 leg pieces)
Yogurt - 1 cup
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Tandoori Chicken Masala - 1 tbsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
Red food color - 2 drops mixed in a tsp of water (optional)
Turmeric - a pinch
Salt as per taste


Take a large bowl, put yogurt, red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, tandoori chicken masala, lemon juice, turmeric, salt, red food color (I did not use color) and mix well.

Clean the drumsticks and make 2-3 slits on each piece.

Add the drumsticks to the above mixture until it coats all the pieces. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hrs.

Take a baking tray, cover it with aluminium foil and prick all over the aluminium foil with a toothpick (you might wanna use a cooking spray...just in case if it sticks...I didn't).

Place the pieces on the tray and broil them for 45 - 55 mins on 400 degrees (it took 50 mins for me).

Mouth-watering Tandoori Chicken is ready to eat....it tasted great....Ajay n one of my frnds daughter (Stavya) loved it.... in fact she asked me to make it for her this coming weekend :)
