Chicken Fry

Well i have experimented on tandoori chicken without using a tandoor.
sounds strange but as i am away from india i dont have the tandoor.
yeah but the chicken can be grilled in the oven also but i use a simple frying pan n cook it on the gas.


Chicken - 300 gms

For marination
  • Ginger paste- 1 tspn
  • Garlic paste- 1 tspn
  • Vinegar - 1 tbspn
  • Lime juice - 1 tbspn
  • Curd - 2 tbspn
  • Chicken masala - 2 tspn
  • Red color powder - a pinch ( optional)
  • salt - acc to taste.

Chicken masala

The chicken masala which i usually use is "sakthi chilli chicken "
U can get the chicken masala from the Indian store .

  • wash the chicken and make small incisions on it (with fork or knife) n set it aside
  • in a bowl add ginger garlic paste and all the above mentioned ingredients for marination
  • stir it properly so that the masala gets dissolved
  • then add the chicken pieces n mix it well
  • now this has to kept it in the refrigerator for to 1 to 2 hrs for proper marination
  • sometimes i keep it overnight( depends upon the availability of time)


  • Heat about 1 tbspn of oil in the frying pan
  • when its hot add the marinated chicken pieces
  • make sure the falme is low
  • occasionally brush it with oil n make sure to turn it
  • keep cooking for abt 10 to 12 mins
  • here we go tasty chicken is ready
Enjoy it as a starter or with chappathi or naan
