Tandoors are clay ovens used to roast chicken, meat, or vegetables. The "tandoori" food is typically marinated before cooking for added flavor and moisture.




  • Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a bowl. For marinade, in a medium bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, ginger, paprika, cumin, coriander, salt, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and garlic; pour over chicken. Close bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

  • Preheat broiler. Drain chicken. Place chicken on unheated rack of broiler pan. (Or thread the chicken onto skewers, leaving 1/4-inch space between pieces. Place skewers on the unheated rack of a broiler pan.) Broil 4 inches from the heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until done (170 degrees F), turning once halfway through broiling.

  • Serve with chutney and, if desired, cilantro leaves. Makes 8 to 10 appetizer servings.
