Tandoori chicken is a chicken dish that is both delicious and popular all over the world! It is prepared by roasting the chicken in a tandoor after it has been marinated in yogurt and spices.

A tandoor is a clay pot which holds enough heat to cook meat while giving it a smoky flavor and succulent texture. It is used in commercial kitchens and produces a lot of heat. A tandoor is not popular in the home and is therefore replaced by using an oven or BBQ grill instead at the household level. 

The main flavor of this dish comes from a combination of yogurt and spices that are used in the marination to flavor the chicken.

Peeled ginger and garlic

The first step is to make the classic ginger and garlic paste that is found in many Indian Cuisine recipes!
