This is my kids scream every time they are hungry. How much chicken can you want? Well, when it comes to kids, they have their own preferences.

This Tandoori Chicken is first time tried recipe, which turn out quite satisfactory, considering first time. 🙂

  • 1 Cup Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Meat Masala

  • 1 tbsp Ginger Powder

  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin Powder
  • ½ tbsp Chilli Powder
  • Green Chili and Onion for Garnishing


  • Mix Yogurt with lemon juice and rest of the spices to make a thick paste.
  • Use this paste to Marinate Chicken for 6-12 hours or overnight in refrigerator. You can marinate chicken with the ingredients of your choice. Like if you don’t prefer having red chili you can totally avoid that.
