Today I am posting a mouthwatering and yummy grilled tandoori chicken, which I have prepared yesterday for my lunch.It is a big hit at my home, my kids enjoyed it very well.It just needed little marination and grill it in the oven and you will like it very much.Here goes the recipe... 



Ingredients:

·         Chicken legs - 4

·         Lemon juice-2tbsp
·         Salt to taste


Preparation:

1.    Clean the chicken legs, remove the skin from the chicken and make slits with a knife, so that masala goes well inside it.

2.    Take a small cup, add 1tsp chili powder, salt, and lemon juice.mix well.Apply this paste nicely to the chicken pieces inside the slits and leave it for 10 minutes.

3.    Then take another bowl, add remaining chili powder, coriander, cumin, tandoori masala, ginger garlic paste and garam masala powder along with curd.Mix well.

4.    Now add the chicken legs to this masala and mix well so that all masala is nicely coated, add ghee at this stage and mix again. Marinate it for overnight in the fridge or At least 4hours.Here I marinated overnight.

5.    Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Take a baking tray and put silver foil and brush the foil with oil and pop the chicken legs into a tray and bake for 1 hour, turning both sides or until it is cooked.Mine cooked for 1 hour 10 minutes make sure how your ovens work and adjust the time.Once it is cooked allow it to cool for few seconds and enjoy with onions strings and lemon wedges.
