A stunning combination of curd and spices make it a perfect marinade. To give it a richer taste, while the chicken is getting baked / roasted. it should be brushed with ghee / oil.
In spite of baking it in an oven, I have tried my best to do justice to this lip-smacking delicious dish.
An all time favorite, especially with a nice chilled glass of beer.
Tastes very very delicious when accompanied with sliced onions and lemon.
10 - 15 Minutes
10 - 12 Hours Minimum
1 1/2 - 2 Hours @ 190 Deg C
Ginger - Garlic Paste
Red Chilli Powder (Kashmiri )
1 - 2 tbsp
Mix all the ingredients together and marinate the chicken for atleast 10 - 12 hours atleast.
Grill the chicken in a pre-heated oven at 190 deg C.
Tastes best with mint chutney, lemon and chopped onions.
Then add all the other ingredients in it. This would give you a nice thick marinade.
Tandoori chicken is a whole chicken, marinaded overnight, cooked on a spit in a tandoor oven.
Chicken tikka is bits of chicken, coated in yoghurt and spices (and sometimes besan flour) and cooked in a tandoor. Both should have spices, garlic and ginger in a full fat yoghurt base, with finely chopped coriander leaf.
