It is traditionally prepared on a clay oven or tandoor  but what to do if you don’t have one —-

Cook it on the gas stove on a grill pan then directly roast on fire for the additional burnt flavour —-

This is one of my favourite and easiest recipe — , this is spicy but not hot and is loved by mostly childrens —-

This recipe has two stage of marination —

Main Ingredients:

  • 6 chicken legs
  • 4 tsp of ginger garlic paste
  • 5 tbsp of hung curd
  • 2 tsp each of coriander and cumin powder
  • 3 tbsp of tandoori chicken masala
  • 2 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp of red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp of garam masala powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp of ghee


Make  deep gashes on the chicken legs with a sharp knife .
First marination:

Marinade the chicken with salt , lemon juice , turmeric and red chilli powder for 30 minutes.

Second marination:

This will be followed by the second marination of the chicken pieces with hung curd, ginger garlic paste, tandoori chicken masala, coriander , cumin powder and ghee .

The chicken should be ideally be marinated overnight but if time is a constraint then marinade the chicken for atleast 3 hours or so—-

Heat a e non-stick grill pan and brush ghee on to it and fry the chicken pieces on low flame covering it with a lid .

Flip over the chicken to bast it on the other side —

Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked through place the legs on a wire rack directly over the  gas stove — to give it a burnt flavour just like restaurant  style —-

Serve it with roti or naan —–
