Non-Vegetarian Recipes - Tandoori Chicken
1 small whole chicken cut into four pieces
1 cup curd
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 tsp plain flour
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp tandoori masala (readily available)
salt to taste
few drops of red food colour
4-5 tbsp oil or melted butter
Hang the curd in a muslin cloth for 1 hour to drip all the water.
Make a marinade by mixing the flour, ginger-garlic paste, cumin, coriander, garam masala, chilli and tandoori masala to the curd. Mix the red colour to obtain a bright orange colour.
Wash and dry chicken and apply marinade all over and place the chicken in a refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
Thread the chicken in skewers and place it in a preheated oven (with a tray underneath to collect the drippings) for 18-20 minutes. Make sure to turn the chicken occasionally and baste (sprinkle) with oil / butter. Serve hot with fine juliennes (shreds) of onions,lime juice and mint.
