Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken, this is my husband's Favorite dish. He loves to eat every type of Non-Veg Dishes (including wife's head, just kidding). I learnt this recipe from Mrs. Neha Patwardhan of Pune. It tastes just like Dhabewala tandoori……. I make this in Gas tandoor which was gifted by my Mavshi (mother's elder sister) for dal bati but mostly I cook Nonveg Kabab on it.


Ingredients

Chicken leg pieces - 4
Thick Curd - 2 tablespoon
Vinegar - 1/2 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 3/4 teaspoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
chili powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Fried onion paste - 2 teaspoon
Kasoori Methi - 1/4 teaspoon
Shahjeera - 1/4 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil - 1/2 teaspoon
Ginger paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic paste - 1 teaspoon
Red colour - 1/8 teaspoon (optional)


Procedure

Mix all the ingredients except chicken for marinade. Make slits on flesh of chicken legs with tip of knife. Push the marinade well into slits of chicken. Marinate chicken for at least 4 hours in marinade. Preheat the gas tandoor. Now place the leg pieces on the grill of the tandoor. Grill the chicken brushing with oil (or pure Ghee) several time. During grilling, turn the pieces frequently. Grill it until cooked from both the sides. Arrange in a plate and sprinkle some chat masala on it. Serve Tandoori chicken with Onion salad, Pudina chutney and lemon rings.


Onion salad

Take 1/2 cup vertically sliced onion. Add 1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves, 1 finely chopped green chili, 1/4 teaspoon vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon chat masala and salt as per taste. Mix it gently.

Where, preferably in Bangalore or in Pune, is the gas-top tandoor available? Internet search has not yielded any results for me.

In Bangalore you can get it in Jamal's @ forum value mall. And in Pune in any stainless still shop of Tulsi Baug.
