One of my absolutly favorite dish from India. did this dish just after finish making some Lussekatter – Saffron buns

juice 2 lemons

4 tsp paprika

8 skinless chicken thighs

vegetable oil, for brushing

300ml Greek yogurt

large piece ginger, grated

4 garlic cloves, crushed

¾ tsp garam masala

¾ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp chilli powder

¼ tsp turmeric

Mix the lemon juice with the paprika in a large shallow dish. Slash each chicken thigh three times, then turn them in the juice and set aside for 10 mins.  Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Give everything a good mix, then cover and chill for at least 1 hr. This can be done up to a day in advance.  Heat the grill. Lift the chicken pieces onto a rack over a baking tray. Brush over a little oil and grill for 10 mins on each side or until lightly charred and completely cooked through.

    Like you, I too, enjoy tandoori chicken. I’ve never attempted to make it at home. though. Your recipe is easy enough and it looks fantastic. Maybe it’s time I give it a try. 🙂
