This Sunday I made some Tandoori Chicken after reading a receipe which was a bit different than the way I used to. I normally would have made this by using ready made tandoori chicken powder. But I used ingredients totally from scratch.
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 inch of ginger
1 tsp of paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp of chilli powder or chilli flakes
4 tsp of unsweetened yogurt
splash of olive oil or sunflower oil
3-4 chicken legs
1. Mix the yogurt with the spices preferably in a blender. If you do not have a blender mix the ingredients in a smooth paste.
2. Slit the chicken with 1/2 inch slits.
3. Marinate the chicken for 8 hours or overnight.
4. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C and cook the chicken pieces in there for about an hour till they are cooked.
