Tandoori Chicken

Work has been very hectic lately and I am still yet to post my Easter dinner recipes. Decided to start with tandoori chicken.


Chicken Drumsticks - 8 (skin removed)
Tandoori masala or paste - 2 tbsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Ginger-garlic paste - 2 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Lime or Vinegar - 2 tsp
Butter - 2 tbsp
Cooking spray


Clean and make slits in the chicken drumsticks. Marinate the chicken with all the above ingredients except butter and cooking spray and leave it overnight. Place aluminium foil on the baking tray and spray a thin coating of cooking spray. Preheat oven to 375F and cook for about 45min till it turns golden brown on top. If you like it crispier place it in the top rack and broil for about 5min. This needs to be served hot as it dries out pretty fast.
