Smokey Tandoori Chicken recipe by Nikki at DesiRecipes.com.
Tandoori Chicken is a very popular dish consisting of roasted chicken, yogurt, and spices.


Ingredients
6 pieces Thawed chickenClick to find more about chicken skinned
2 tsp Ground Coriander
2 tsp Masala (Tandoori paste is available) to taste
Red pepper powder
Dash GarlicClick to find more about Garlic powder to taste
SaltClick to find more about Salt 1 tsp
Ground zeeraClick to find more about zeera
Soy sauce (or yogurt)
(needed only if tandoori masala is used)


Preparation
If you are using the ready made tandoori paste then life is a lot easier.
Replace all occurences of masala and soy sauce (or yogurt) with the tandoori paste.
Take the chickenClick to find more about chicken and make *deep* cuts in it (so that the Masalas seeps in quickly).
If you are using soy sauce as the base, put some on the chickenClick to find more about chicken pieces and let it seep in the cuts.
Rub in the Masalas as a mixture or one at a time.
The idea is to let the Masalas seep in the cuts with the soy sauce.
You can leave it for little while to seep in.
If you are using yogurt, you'll get a more authentic taste since the original masala is after all marinated in it.
In this case, mix the Masalas in the yogurt first and then rub the stuff into the chickenClick to find more about chicken cuts as before.
The yogurt tends to leave a considerable amount of water behind.
DON'T THROW THIS AWAY.
Let it evaporate in the oven with the chickenClick to find more about chicken.
This will keep the pieces from getting dry if overcooked.
I have not faced the same problem with the soy sauce version (of dry chickenClick to find more about chicken). Cook the chickenClick to find more about chicken until it starts turning brown.
