I have always loved South Asian food... Many years ago, when I was new to their cuisine, one of the first things I wanted to try was tandoori chicken. I had seen documentaries on how they prepared breads and meats in a tandoor (a vat shaped clay oven heated with charcoal/wood) and just about salivated!

When I had my first South Asian meal at an Indian restaurant, I loved everything about the food... EXCEPT the tandoori chicken. It was not the succulent meat I had pictured it to be... it tasted like they had soaked the bird in lemon and rubbed it in red colouring. I felt quite cheated!

ANYWAY... yesterday, my sister-in-law Amber and I tried our hand in making our own tandoori chicken and I am so happy to report that it was a success! It was nice and juicy and it was spicy without being overpowering. It was also extremely easy to make too!

3D: We didn't think it would be that easy either so it was such a pleasant surprise! My mother-in-law's oven is really old so you may want to watch the oven the first time you cook the chicken and adjust the temperature and time. I just reported what worked for us.

Jam: If we have a mummies get-together, we must have a makan session and try all these dishes here!

Marmalade,

Thank you for sharing this recipe. We have always like tandoori anything but have never made our own. This is very good - has a good kick to it Very Happy . I was too lazy to dig out my ginger from the freezer so added 1/2tsp ginger powder instead. Thumps up :lol:

Thank you for the recipe Marmalade
Yes I agree with you some of the tandoori chickens especially with too much red colouring is off putting and do not taste good for sooo much malt vinegar added.
Anyway I had the opportunity to eat a similar tandoori (very simply done) where it was then USSR and today is Uzbekistan in that region and Kazakhstan, Russia as well as Mongolia tandoor ovens are popular and known as tandir.

Marmalade, I tried this over the weekend. Chicken tasted great but I didn't get the "crust" you mentioned. Also, at the end of baking there was quite alot of watery gravy left on the baking pan. Could it be becos I marinated the chicken for too long? (36 hrs becos I didn't bake it Sat nite as planned, but on Sun for lunch.)

I was thinking of doing Gina's Fried Spiced Chicken but then agian the weather turned out nice and cool so I had chicken in buttermilk(if I resist drinking it) so went ahead and decided for Marmale's tandoori chicken I added my own twist since buttermilk is more acid no lemon or vinegar was required added a teaspoon of sweet spanish paprika and basted with soft butter 10 minutes before removing from the oven. To this I added some rwa tomato chutney(South Indian style) dahl and yogourt raita(chopped garlic,mint and little sprigs of coriander with lime juice) heavenly
Very Happy Very Happy

Marmalade, thanks the recipe.

I made the Tandoori Chicken yesterday and it was so delicious.

The only thing was I forgotten to remove the chicken skins and all the flavour was on the skin. But the chicken turned out so nice not dried at all.

Would do it the next time & would try to remember to remove the skins. Very Happy
