Tandoori chicken is very popular in India and Pakistan. The recipe of chicken and rice is very popular all over the world now. Indian chicken tikka masala is prepared using a traditional method of cooking ingredients without destroying their tastes. The tandoori chicken masala that we are talking here is prepared by mixing the spices like turmeric, red chili powder, cumin, coriander powder, black cardamom seeds and dry red chillies and dry mango powder in a pureed milk.
Grill the Chicken: Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan or skillet, add the whole ingredients in the marinade mixture, except for the spices. Coat the piece of chicken with the mixture and place it in the pre-heated marinade. Grill for approximately 2 hours at a low temperature.
Rinse: Once cooked, the marinated chicken must be left in the marinades for about an hour to remove all the flavors and seasonings. Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to the drained coating. Cover and leave to dry. This is to make sure the garlic paste does not stick to the bottom of the tandoori chicken masala. To serve, garnish with coriander leaves and dry the chicken on your desired garnishing. Add some fresh mints or asafetida for a delicious taste.
Use Yogurt and Coriander Powder: Yogurt is one of the most popular ingredients in Indian curries, which makes this tangy tandoori chicken masala that much more interesting. Coriander powder is an excellent substitute if yogurt is not readily available. It adds a delightful flavor and tangy texture. Coriander leaves can be dried and used as spice for roasting or as ingredients for making other Indian dishes. They are available at gourmet food stores and online Tandoori Chicken Masala.
Garnish: A tasty way to embellish this dish is to garnish with fresh cilantro or mint leaves. Parsley is also a popular choice for garnishing Indian dishes. These spices not only lend a unique flavor to the roasted chicken, but also makes the dish taste even better. They add a depth of flavor that makes it unique from the traditional chicken preparation.
