Last weekend, I prepared delicious brunch for my family. Prepared mixed fried rice, basic gravy and simple tandoori chicken. Really, the taste we enjoyed a lot. This is my brunch:

Hmmm... yummy, delicious, quick and easy tandoori chicken. This is my all time favorite. Here is my recipe:

Tandoori Chicken:
Prep : 3Hrs (For marination : 5mts; Soaking time: 3 hrs)
Cooking time: 30mts (In Oven)
Serves : 2 (Each 2)
Cuisine : Indian

4 Chicken drumsticks
2 tbsp readymade tandoori chicken masala (I used Shaan company masala)
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp yogurt
2 tbsp lemon juice

1. Prepare the marinade in a bowl with above ingredients except chicken drumsticks. Apply this marinade to each drumstick evenly, keep in fridge for 3 hours.

2. Place these marinated chicken drumsticks in a bake tray.

3. Keep that baking tray in oven, cook till done or you can check the color of drumsticks. Turn off the oven.

4. Serve with onion slices and lemon.

Note:1. Cook the drumsticks on 500 degrees F for 30minutes or till done.

  12. I tried tandoori chicken...it was good except that it was bland inside..only the outer layer had d masala...any suggestions???

  13. Hi Swetha! Next time while making tandoori chicken, follow this tip that is before marinating chicken, make the slits (3 or 4)with knife on each drumstick, then do the marination and keep in freeze for minimum 3 hours or more. I hope you may enjoy the taste. Thanks for dropping by dear.
