Tandoor Chicken (Variation)

This recipe came out from my own kitchen. When I came to U.S., I was novice at cooking. I tried to make a new dish everyday with my own ideas. Sometimes, it comes out well and sometimes …(I won’t say about that). This came out pretty well.

Boneless chicken/with bones pieces – 1 Lb
Onions Onion (sliced) – 2
Limes – 3
Whole green chilli – 5
Onion paste – 3 tbs.
Ginger paste/powder – 1/2 tsp.
Garlic paste/powder – 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp.
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp.
Coriander powder & Cumin powder – 1 tsp.
Plain yogurt – 1 tbs.
Salt – 1.5 tsp. or to taste
Cinnamon powder – 1/4 tbs.
Cloves powder – 1/4 tsp.
Oil – 2 tbs.
Clean the chicken pieces. Mix Onion paste, Ginger, Garlic, Turmeric, Red chilli powder,coriander,cumin,yogurt,salt,Cinnamon and Clove powder in a small bowl. Put 1 Tbs. oil to it. mix it well. In a big bowl put all the chicken pieces. Put all the spices from the small bowl onto the chicken. Mix it well, so, that the chicken pieces are covers with spices. Keep it for 6 to 8 hours. Preheat the oven at 450 F. Now spread some oil in a big flat baking tray. Keep all the chicken pieces one by one (in a single layer). Once the oven is ready, keep the tray inside the oven for 45 minutes. If you want more color, change the oven to broil, turn all pieces and put it inside the oven for 5 minutes. Now keep all the chicken pieces in a tray or plate. Spread sliced onions on top of it. Cut the limes into half. Keep those on top of onions. Decorate the dish with green chilies.Tandoori chicken is ready to serve. You can have it with rice or you can have it just like that. I liked it.
