Posted by EsyRecipes Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Discirption:Spicy red whole chicken,marinated in yogurt and spices traditionally cooked in a clay oven called “tandoor”.In this recipe we just bake the chicken in the oven and brown it under a broiler.Works pretty well.
  • 1 whole chicken without skin ( 1 ¼ kg or abt 3 lbs)
  • 1 ½ tsps chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 /4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsps ginger garlic paste
  • 2 Tbsps lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsps plain yogurt/curd
  • 3 Tbsps oil
  • Red food coloring as needed
  • Salt to taste
How to make:
  • Wash the chicken and make slits with a sharp knife.
  • Pat dry.
  • To the curd add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour spice mixture over the chicken and let it marinate for about 6 hrs in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Line the oven proof dish with foil if preferred.
  • Baste the chicken with oil and bake for 30-45 mins or until chicken is cooked through.(depending on the oven)
  • Baste with dripping halfway through the cook time.
  • When done, broil the chicken on high for a min till browned on top.
  • Serve garnished with lemon wedges and onions.
Note:Marinate chicken in a plastic freezer bag (like the ziploc gallon bag) and massage the marinade with your hands through the bag.It is mess free and cleaning is a breeze…..just toss the bag
