Tandoori Chicken


4 to 5 Chicken Thighs (skinless)
you can also use drumsticks or wings or breast pieces
3 teaspoons tandoori masala
1 teaspoon garlic paste
4 teaspoons oil
2 teaspoons whole milk yogurt or sour cream


Wash and clean the chicken. Mix all the other ingredients well and then apply it to the chicken and marinate it overnight in the fridge.
On a cookie sheet lines with foil - arrange the chicken and put it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Turn the chicken around after 20 minutes. Check for doneness. It should be done in 30 minutes all together. Then broil the chicken for 5 minutes to get a nice crispy crust.
Be careful - as the smoke detector at my place generally goes off during the broiling process. Just have someone fan the some detector at all time :)
You can serve this with salad and yogurt chutney (recipe in the older items)

Photograph for the tandoori chicken is in the roasted veggies pasta recipe

Hi sangeeta - thanks!
well broil is - to cook with a direct heat source—usually a gas flame or an electric coil above the food.

Baking and broiling are completely different ways to cook food.
In baking, you are trying to heat food by surrounding the food with hot air.
In broiling, you are trying to heat food using direct heat.
You will find your oven with the bake and broil setting.
Let me know if this helps - I can otherwise write a detailsed note to you too.
