Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori chicken is one of India’s most popular dishes.The word tandoori refers to any food cooked in a tandoor, which is a giant, unglazed clay oven.This dish has a nice blend of yogurt and masala blended well in the chicken when marinated & the spice mixture gives this juicy taste to the chicken.
1 whole chicken cut into four pieces (skin removed)
3 tbsp onion paste (1 medium size onion)
2 tsp ginger paste
3-4 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
4 tbsp curds
salt to taste
½ tbsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp cloves powder
2 tsp meat masala
for garnishing
2 sliced onions
lemon slices
Clean the chicken pieces & remove skin making slashes/cuts in the chicken to the bone; coat with salt and turmeric and set it aside for 30 minutes, then rub lime juice, set aside for an hour
Mix Onion paste, Ginger, Garlic, Turmeric, Red chilli powder, coriander, cumin, curds, salt, Cinnamon and Clove powder, meat masala in a small bowl.
In a big bowl put all the chicken pieces.
Add the curd and masala mixture from the small bowl onto the chicken.
Mix well so that the chicken pieces are covered with the spices.
refrigerate the marinated chicken for 10 hours.
Preheat the oven at 220 °C.
Line up the oven tray with an aluminium sheet to avoid the juice of the meat to stick onto the oven tray.
Arrange the pieces onto the skewers leaving some space between each piece
Once the oven is ready, place the skewers on the rack inside the oven for 45 minutes.
Now keep all the chicken pieces in a plate & serve immediately with sliced onions & lemon slices.
