Tandoori Chicken

  • Chicken legs : 3
  • Oil : 2 Tbsp
  • Kashmiri chilly pdr : 1 Tbsp
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Tandoori masala : 2½ Tbsp
  • Yoghurt : 1 cup 
  • Kashmiri chilly pdr : 1 Tbsp
  • Red colour : 1 pinch
  • Kasoori methi : ½ Tsp
  • Ginger paste : 1 Tbsp
  • Garlic paste : 1 Tbsp
  • Salt
Clean the chicken pieces. Make some incisions on the chicken pieces and marinate it with oil, Kashmiri chilly pdr (1 tbsp), lime juice and salt. Keep it aside for 1 hr.

Then make a thick paste using the rest of the ingredients from tandoori masala to salt. Mix it and marinate the chicken pieces with the above paste. Cover and refrigerate it for 4 to 6 hrs. Then keep it outside to bring it to room temperature. Pre-heat the grill (use the grill mode of your convection microwave oven and not the baking mode) and transfer the marinated chicken into an oven tray. Drizzle some olive oil over the chicken and put it in the oven. Then grill it for 70 to 80 mins, flip it after each 12 mins and drizzle little oil and continue grilling. The time may vary depending upon the size of the chicken pieces. Squeeze little lime juice over the chicken pieces and serve it hot.
