  9. 1 t/s garam masala powder
  10. 1 tbsp chicken masala powder
  11. 1/2 t/s turmeric
  12. 1 t/s chili powder
  13. few chopped coriander leaves
  14. few chopped mint leaves
  15. few kasuri methi (dried feungreek leaves)
  16. 2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
  17. 1 tbsp chat masala
  18. 1 tbsp anardana powder
  19. black salt as per taste
  1. few chopped coriander leaves
  2. few mint leaves
  3. onion cut into rounds for decoration
Equipment Required:
  1. aluminium foil
  2. microwave at convection mode
  3. tooth pick
  4. baking pan Or tray
Preheat oven at 220°C exactly 10 mins before baking. Place aluminium foil on the pan. This helps to induce heat and baking process. Firstly wash boneless chicken pieces and keep aside. Let’s prepare our marination. Combine 1 tbsp kashmiri red chili powder, turmeric, lime juice, black salt, cumin seed, chicken masala powder. Combine all nicely cover and keep aside for 30 to 40 mins.

Now mix hung curd with ginger-garlic paste, garam masala powder, combine kashmiri red chilipowder, cumin seed powder, fennel seed powder, kasuri methi, coriander leaves, mint leaves, chat masala, anardana powder, rest of kashmiri chili powder, red chili powder, garam masala powder and salt. Combine nicely with a beater in a bowl until is nicely mixed.

Now rub this curd marination on the chicken piece. Sprinkle corn flour on it. Cover all nicely and keep aside into a freezer covered overnight Or for 3 to 4 hours. The longer the marination the better it is.

Take toothpick and insert into each chicken piece right at the center. Skewer all chicken pieces. Place the skewered chicken pieces at a one inch space from each other on the aluminium foil. Don’t cluster too many chicken at one go. Spread the marinated batter if any remaining. I spent 2 hours making tandoori chicken in oven. As my oven is small hence small tray.

Bake in oven at 220°C for 7 to 9 mins until its cooked and slightly brown.

Remove the skewers sprinkle some lime juice, chat masala, chopped coriander-mint leaves, onion ringlets and tandoori chicken chutney. Serve hot with naan.

Don’t overbake as the chicken will get dried out and juices will evaporate.
You can add 2 tbsp black pepper it becomes Peppered Tandoori Chicken.
It’s important to preheat the oven before baking chicken.
If you are using medium sized chicken ensure yo prick them with fork then marinate. As this process will help the marination to penetrate better in the chicken'
