Fish -------------------2
 For Marination:
Yogurt---------------- 2tbsp
Ginger --------------  1 inch piece
Garlic----------------  4 cloves
Onion----------------   1/2 of medium sized
Red chilly powder-  2 tsp or to taste
Coriander powder-- 1tbsp
Garam masala powder-- 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds--------------- 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice----------------1tsp
Red food colour---------- a pinch (optional)
Salt as needed

  1. Grind all the marinating ingredients to a smooth paste.
  2. Marinate fish for 4  hrs or  overnight in refrigerator.
  3. In a medium hot pan, add needed oil & fry the fish in both sides.
  •  This can be prepared in tandoori oven.
  • Tandoori chicken can be prepared  in the same method.
  •  Also, if needed, instead of red food colour, you can add a very small piece (not more than 1cm) of  beetroot .


  1. Yumm!!irresistible tandoori chicken..

  2. Looks delicious! We love tandoori food and I'm always hunting for recipes.
    About adding the beetroot, will it alter the flavour at all? I think I would rather add that than artificial colour if possible.

  3. Hi Sunitha, Thanks for visiting my blog.
    You can add very little (1/4 tsp) Beetroot boiled water or can grind a very small piece (1cm)of Beetroot along with the marinating ingredients.This won't alter the flavour.
