Tandoori Chicken

                                                                                                                                                           
Tandoori Chicken is an all time favourite delicacy particularly savored in Northern India.  The key to it's delightful taste is it's marination and grilling in a slow and steady manner. Mostly consumed during evening hours, this dish is enjoyed by young and old alike.


Serves: 2, Cooking Time: 20 minutes


Ingredients:
Marination needs-
4 pieces-Chicken drumsticks
2 tsp Ginger paste
2 tsp Garlic paste
1 tsp Green chilly paste
1/2 cup Yogurt (hung for 1/2 hour)
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 pinch Food color (red)
1 tbsp Lemon juice
Salt as required
Pepper as required
Refind oil for basting


Little butter *


For Garnishing-
Few lettuce leaves
Few onion rings
Few lemon wedges
1 tsp Chaat masala

Method:
Clean the chicken drumsticks and make slits diagonally to penetrate the marinade. Mix all the marinate ingredients (except butter)* to make a smooth batter. Marinate and refrigerate it for 7-8 hours. 
                                                                           
   
Pre-heat the oven for 250 Degree Celsius. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and grease the sheet with oil. Arrange the chicken on the tray and  grill them for about 10 minutes on one side. Then rub butter on drumsticks (this will keep the roast moist) and grill them again for 10 minutes. Remove the chicken from oven, place them on lettuce leaves. Serve them with Pudina /Mint chutney, onion rings and lemon wedges. Sprinkle some chaat masala.
