2. Chilli Powder – 1 1/2 teaspoon

4. Coriander Seeds Powder – 1 teaspoon

5. Garam Masala – 1/4 teaspoon

6. Curd – 2 tablespoons


Let’s see how to cook Tandoori Chicken at home without an oven


Wash the chicken and put cuts in the chicken for the masala to seep in.

Then, twist the hands to the back

This chicken has to be marinated in two times

First, add 1 teaspoon salt to a bowl along with 1 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder and 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Then Add 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste and mix

Place the chicken in a bowl and spread the masala all over the chicken and inside the cuts

Then Marinate for 10-15 minutes

Let’s prepare masala for the second marination

To a bowl, add 2 tablespoons tandoori masala, 1 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder, 1 teaspoon coriander seeds powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt or salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon garam masala

Here I’m also adding food colour, but this step is optional

Now, add 3-4 tablespoons strained curd and mix

Then Add 2 teaspoons oil and mix

Spread this masala on the prepared chicken and marinate for a minimum of 2 hours


Put this chicken in the fridge (Or rest the marinated chicken in a cool place)


Here I marinated the chicken for 4 hours

This chicken needs to be boiled now

Then Tie both the legs of the chicken with a thread

Place a thick bottom pan on the stove and place the chicken in it

Put the extra masala in the bowl over the chicken and close lid

Then Cook on medium to high flame

Water will seep out of the chicken as it boils

Flip the chicken after 3-4 minutes and close lid again

If  water doesn’t seem to seep out of the chicken, then add a little water. Add only 3-4 tablespoons water

It will take 18-20 minutes for the chicken to cook completely

Poke it with a fork to see if the chicken has cooked completely

The chicken has boiled completely now

To get that tandoori smokey flavour to the chicken we need to place it directly on the flame

Place a grill on the stove and cook the chicken on direct flame  (This grill is usually used to make pulka)

Spread butter over it and cook

Tandoori chicken is ready!
