Tandoori Chicken/Spicy Roasted Chicken

  • Chicken Legs with thighs: 6
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil or any oil: 1tbsp
Note: Can also use Skinless whole Chicken cut in to pieces.

To marinate:
  • Red Chilly Powder: 3tsp (according to your taste)
  • Cumin Powder: 1tsp
  • Garam Masala Powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric: 1/4 tsp
  • Coriander Powder: 2 tsp
  • Ginger Paste: 1 tsp
  • Garlic Paste: 1 tsp
  • Lemon: 1/2
  • Honey: 1tbsp
  • Thick Yogurt/Curds: 1 cup
  • Coriander/Cilantro: 3 strings finely chopped
  • Salt: To taste
For Base:

(The below mentioned items are used just to maintain the space between the tray and the chicken)
  • Carrot: 1big
  • Onion: 1 big
  • Frozen Finger Chips: 1 cup
  • Aluminum foil
Note: Can also use 1 large potato cut into strips or diced Instead of frozen finger chips.

  • Wash the chicken & squeeze out all the excess water.
  • Make deep slashes in flesh (both side) so marinate penetrates inside.
  • If using whole chicken for small pieces prick the flesh all over with a fork. Keep aside.
To Marinate:
  • In a bowl add all the marinate ingredients & Mix well.
  • Taste it & adjust the seasoning.
Note: Red food colour can be used but I don’t prefer using colour.
  • Add chicken rub the marination so it reaches deep inside the slashes & all over.
  • Add oil, mix & rest it for a 1-2hr.
  • Preheat the oven to 450F or 230C for 10 min.
  • Cover the tray with aluminum foil.
  • Make a base. Spread carrot, onion & finger chips.
Note: I like to make a base to avoid chicken from sticking to tray & keeps marinate attached to chicken & keeps the chicken dry from the dripping fats, this base also gives good aroma to the chicken.

  • Place chicken on top of it.
  • Place tray in the oven.
  • After 15-20min turn it to the other side.
  • It takes about 30min to 45min or cook till it turns brown & dry.
  • Make sure to check in between.
Note: Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of chicken.

Those who like to barbecue they can grill the chicken on it, in the middle keep brushing the chicken with oil.

Tandoori chicken is ready to serve with onions & lemon wedges.

This post reminds me-I have not eaten tandoori chicken ever since the snow stopped us from grilling outside. I loved the marination and the veggies you used to avoid the chicken from sticking to the bottom:)
