Grilled Tandoori Chicken

Today i am posting a mouthwatering and yummy grilled tandoori chicken,which i have prepared yesterday for my lunch.It is big hit at my home,my kids enjoyed it very well .It just needed little marination and grill it in the oven and you will like it very much.Here goes the recipe.. 


Chicken legs - 4
Kashmiri chilli powder-2tbsp
Thick yogurt-4tbsp
Ginger-garlic paste-1tbsp
Cumin powder-1/2tbsp
Garam masala-1/2tbsp
Coriander powder-1tbsp
Tandoori masala powder-1/2tbsp
Ghee/butter/oil-1tbsp(here i used ghee)
Lemon juice-2tbsp
Salt to taste

Clean the chicken legs,remove the skin on the chicken and make slits with knife ,so that masala goes well  inside it.
Take a small cup, add 1tsp chilli powder, salt and lemon juice.mix well.Apply this paste nicely to the chicken pieces inside the slits and leave it for 10 minutes .Then take another bowl,add remaining chilli powder, coriander, cumin,tandoori masala,gingergarlic paste and garam masala powder along with curd.Mix well.

Now add the chicken legs into this masala and mix well so that all masala is nicely coated, add ghee at this stage and mix again. Marinate it for overnight in the fridge or At least 4hours.Here I marinated overnight.

Preheat the oven to 200 degree Take baking tray and put silver foil and brush the foil with oil and pop the chicken legs into tray and bake for 1 hour,turning both sides or until it is cooked.Mine cooked at 1 hour 10 minutes make sure how your ovens works and adjust the time.Once it is cooked allow it to cool for few seconds and enjoy  with onions strings and lemon wedges.
