Chicken Tandoori



Chicken Tandoori is a popular Indian dish made with marinated chicken that is cooked in a tandoor. The chicken is marinated in a mixture of yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and spices such as cumin, coriander, garam masala, and chili powder. The marinade helps to tenderize the chicken and infuse it with flavor. The chicken is then skewered and cooked in the tandoor until it is charred and cooked through. The result is a juicy, flavorful, and slightly spicy dish that is often served with naan or rotis.
