Tandoori Chicken - By Vahchef

The raw chicken is marinated in a mixture of yogurt and the spice tandoori masala. Cayenne pepper, red chili powder or Kashmiri red chili powder is used to give it a fiery red hue. A higher amount of turmeric produces an orange color. In milder versions, both red and yellow food coloring are sometimes used to achieve bright colors, but turmeric powder is both mild and brightly colored, as is paprika, a sweet red pepper powder.


2 pounds chicken, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1 lemon, juiced
1 1/4 cups plain yogurt
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon red food coloring

Adding 1-2 spoons of coriander powder gives a better taste!

Tandoori Chicken can be baked in a oven (450 degrees F) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is done.

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
