Chicken Fry/Tandoori Chicken



Well i have experimented on tandoori chicken without using a tan door.
sounds strange but as i am away from india i dont have the tan door.
yeah but the chicken can be grilled in the oven also but i have used simple frying pan and cooked it on the gas.
This is a post from the archive but i would like to re-post it for the event Potluck chicken

Chicken masala

The chicken masala which i usually use is "sakthi chilli chicken "
Marination
  • wash the chicken and make small incisions on it (with fork or knife) and 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 and mix it well
  • now this has to kept it in the refrigerator for to 1 to 2 hrs for proper marination
