I love Indian food! It is one of our go-to foods on the weekend, especially on a lazy day where we plan on nothing else. Indian lunch buffet, then bum the rest of the day away. One of the dishes I love is the tandoori chicken. I decided to mimic that as best as I could. That means oven roasting without a tandoor pot. Mine also turned out a lot less red than the usual, I believe there is another spice that does that, or even food coloring. I didn’t want to food color it so I was ok with the yellow tint it got with spices I used.
I got some chicken quarters and marinated those for a night in a seasoning combination of yogurt, garam masala (this stuff is delicious), cloves, ginger, garlic, fennel seeds, veggie oil, lime juice, cinnamon, paprika, turmeric, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
I also removed the skin and cut slits down to the bone, so the marinade got everywhere!
I just got some basmati and added some onions, turmeric, and garlic. I sauteed the onions and turmeric first to get the flavors going.
