1 cup yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon Tumeric
2-3 tablespoons Tandoori Masala
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
4 teaspoons salt, or to taste
one Whole chicken or cut into smaller pieces
3 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin 2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Cut chicken on its bones and in a bowl soak in with some salt and vinegar for 30 minutes. Mix all ingredients together in a separate bowl. Drain out chicken and towel dry. Marinate the chicken with the paste for 30 minutes and place it inside the fridge. Pre-heat the oven at 400C, place the chicken in your cooking dish and cover it with aluminum foil with some vents and leave it inside the oven for 50+ minutes till it’s nice and tender. Place it on your serving dish and garnish it with some fresh cilantro.
Remove the aluminum foil just after 40 minutes so the chicken is nicely golden.
