Tandoori Chicken is a popular Indian dish, originating from the northern parts of India. Even though India is a large country with vastly different cuisines, the dish Tandoori chicken is the closest contender to be called the national dish of India. It consists of roasted chicken prepared with yoghurt and spices and served as an appetizer before the meal. Traditionally it is made in a clay oven (or so called “tandoor”) at high temperature; hence its name Tandoori chicken. This recipe is adapted to the modern day conventional oven but still retains its authentic taste.
