Tandoori Chicken

Serves: 4


For the spice marinade


Note: For the smoky flavour, heat a piece of charcoal in a small steel container or katori and position in the middle of a larger saucepan or kadhai and place the tandoori chicken pieces around it.

Cover to stop the smoke from escaping and smoke for 5-10 minutes.

It's important to choose a top quality chicken tandoori masala or make your own tandoori powder [external link].
