Easy Tandoori Chicken

Jayshraj is in Perth… He is going to be here one or two months until the paper works are all done… Cooking for him is the most challenging task to do… Amma and Meera pampered him a lot… He is very choosy on what he eats… Chicken almost everyday and spicy flavored ones… I am not a good cook but I love to learn… I need to cook like amma so that he doesn’t miss home much… Amma is definitely a great cook… Well I believe anything cooked with love and care would be tasty…

I decided to do tandoori chicken in oven… Jayshraj enjoyed it… Try it kids will sure love it…easy and quick recipe… I am a little bit bad in measurement when it comes to Indian cooking… Just go by the taste and few trial and error… Bare with me 🙂

Tandoori Chicken in oven


2 pieces Chicken Breast (Cut into 1 or 2 inches)

Garlic and ginger paste

1 tablespoon Tomato puree

2  tablespoons Chili powder (as per your taste)

1 teaspoon Turmeric

1 tablespoon Paprika powder

1 tablespoon Cumin powder

1 tablespoon Coriander powder

2 tablespoons Garam Masala

2 tablespoon Natural yogurt

Salt (your own measurement)

Vegetable oil or olive oil


1. Mix all and marinate… Cover and keep in the fridge for half a day or over night… It has to smell good… It will for all the spices added…

2. Sock 10 or more wooden skewers in cold water for 15 minutes… Turn on the oven to 180 C

3. Thread the chicken pieces on the skewers and place it on the tray.

4. Brush oil on the chicken and cook for 10 t0 20 minutes… Turn ang brush with oil at least once.

5. Check if the chicken is cooked though and serve it hot.

All good to eat now… Serve it with mint chutney or chili sauce… A reminder,  the measurements are just my rough idea because I usually throw all in inside without measuring much… You can change according to your taste…

Kids will love this… Jayshraj did… 🙂
