Tandoori Chicken – The dish of Chicken lovers!

Tandoori Chicken – the name itself makes one start to crave for this mouth-watering delicacy. I believe that the list of Chicken dishes is just incomplete without this super awesome Tandoori dish. While there are many countries that have Tandoori Chicken as must-have in their Asian restaurants’ menu card, it’s a very popular dish mainly in India and Pakistan.

There are many ways to make it – some prefer it with more spice while some relish it with lesser spicy ingredients. I have tried to keep it just perfect in my attempt. Hope you all enjoy making and serving it to your loved ones. Keep me updated with your reviews!
