Tandoori Chicken

</br> This is a very typical indian entrée, that can be made with chicken, paneer, or even vegetables like mushrooms. I like to have it as a main course with a big green salad with lots of olive oil, as well as some fresh tomato, red onions and coriander.

If you cannot find tandoori masala, you can use this recipe instead

  • 4 chicken thighs, with bone (if boneless, should be around 800 g)
  • 1 cup yoghurt (10% fat)
  • 2 tbsp tandoori masala
  • Ginger paste - 2 tbsp
  • Garlic paste - 2 tbsp
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili
  • 3/4 tsp salt (start with less and add to taste)
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Process
    1. Make slits in the chicken.
    2. Mix the yoghurt, lemon and spices. Try the mix to adjust salt.
    3. Marinate the chicken and let sit in the fridge at least 4 hours.
    4. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
    5. Put the chicken on the griddle and a baking sheet underneath to collect any juices.
    6. Cook until dry and crunchy, at least 30 minutes.
    7. Let rest a couple of minutes before serving.
