Tandoori Chicken

This is a long-overdue post. I had promised one of my cousins that I would send him the Tandoori marinade recipe since it would make great barbecues . But I never got round to mailing him.. Since he does visit my blog sometimes, I thought that it would be easier to just post it here and let him know.. So this is for u..'J'...

Chicken  - 1 Kg(Cleaned and cut into big pieces )

Score the chicken on both sides to the so that the marinade goes deep.

Grind into a paste - 

Garlic cloves - 6-8
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Green chillies - 3-4
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Pudina (mint) leaves - 1/4 cup

To the paste add 
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Curd - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Chilli powder - 1 to 2 tsp (adjust according to preferance)
Salt to taste
Orange food colour (optional) I do not like the colour.

Marinate overnight if possible.. or for 1 hour. 

BBQ, grill or shallow fry , serve with green salad, raita and bread, rotis etc..enjoy
