METHOD
  1. Grind all the marinating ingredients to a smooth paste .
  2. Marinate the chicken pieces for overnight in refrigerator.
  3. Then apply non stick spray in a heavy pan and add oil to it and fry the chicken pieces in low flame.
  4. Garnish with cilantro leaves/ coriander leaves and lemon.
Tandoori chicken can either be grilled or cooked in a Tandoori oven. I used a heavy iron pan for cooking chicken. The iron pan holds the heat for long time.
