Tandoori Chicken Masala

    This is another spice mixture readily available at most Asian stores. However, many like to make their own and this is
    a basic recipe. I personally like Shan branded packet varieties that come from Pakistan.

    Makes - 20 gm:
    Preparation time: 10 minutes

  • Coriander Powder - 3 tablespoon
  • Cumin Powder - 3 tablespoon
  • Garlic Powder - 3 tablespoon
  • Paprika Powder - 3 tablespoon
  • Chillie Powder - 3 teaspoon
  • Ginger Powder - 5 teaspoon
  • Mango Powder - 5 teaspoon
  • Dried Mint - 5 teaspoon
  • Red Food Colouring Powder - 1 teaspoon

  • Mix all the ingredients together.

  • Store in an airtight container and use when necessary.

    Red food colouring powder can be replaced with 7-8 drops of liquid food colouring. Freshly grated ginger and garlic
    paste can also be used instead of the powder variety. However, this can only be added while marinating chicken.

    To make a complete marinade for 1 Kg Tandoori Chicken, simply add 3 tablespoon of the above mixture along with
    250 gms of plain yoghurt, 2 tablespoon of salt and 10 tablespoon of oil- viz. Mustard, Groundnut, Sunflower or any
    other of your choice!
