Tandoori Chicken,Oven Grilled

By: Prasanna| Published: 9:52:00 PM

This is an update on old post . I have updated the pictures and recipe.

Tandoori chicken is a most popular starter/appetizer on most of the  menu selections.
I think every lady who likes to do experiments in her kitchen has at least tried once to cook tandoori, in an attempt to achieve the restaurant quality of tandoori.
Well, even i did that myself, don't remember how many times and finally perfected it.😊
This recipe is a very much healthy option in tandoori as I have not used any oil in this recipe.
So here's another successful attempt to make yummy and flavorful tandoori :)
