Tandoori Chicken is marinated meat that is lowered into the oven on long metal skewers and cooked to perfection in the steaming Tandoori “pit”. The raw chicken is marinated using yogurt and tandoori masala. Yoghurt is perfect due to its thick and acidic nature and penetrates deep into the meat absorbing the herbs and spices of the tandoori masala. Cayenne Pepper and chilli powder accounts for its vibrant color. The tandoori masala consists of cinnamon, garam masala, peppercorns, cardamoms, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cloves, bay leaf and turmeric powder and cayenne Pepper. Some of the spices can be adjusted based on how spicy you would like it to be.
