This restaurant-style Tandoori Chicken will look good on any table spread. Mouthwatering, spicy and will have you reaching for your next piece.

A tantalizing dish traditionally baked in a tandoor at 500 degrees Celsius. Now not everyone has a tandoor at home, so this recipe has been adjusted to work with a conventional oven. Also, this method tries to keep the ingredients simple, ingredients that you may already have stocked in your kitchen. If you do not have ground Kashmiri Mirch, you can replace it with ground cayenne, hot sauce, or ground red chillies. Traditionally dahi (Indian homemade yogurt) is used during the second margination process. However, you can use any plain unsweetened yogurt.  It will still achieve the same great taste.

 

This dish, in general, is quite healthy when added to a balanced meal plan and can help you keep on track. Take note I am not a dietitian, but I do know that every meal should be balanced. The chilli peppers in the dish despite making you cry from their fiery hotness carry a decent number of vitamins and minerals ranging from vitamin-c to potassium. Garam Masala contains many antioxidants and can help with digestion. I could go on and on about the benefits of this dish.
