    Chef floWer's Note:

    I seen this on TV, it was an SBS show called Food Safari which is hosted by Maeve O'Meara. The recipe was made by Nighat Hassan a Pakistani chef and she used an outdoors Pakistani oven but I made it on a regular oven. Nighat made it look so simple and it is, I marinated mine for two days and the flavours really enhanced, we served it with steam rice, a large dollop of yoghurt with a sprinkle of cumin powder, tomatoes and lettuce salad with a mint leaf to garnish, but the chef suggested a Pakistani Mint Sauce. We found eating the chicken with the yoghurt enhanced the flavours more. Please note: Marinating time is not included. Enjoy

      Excellent Tandoori! We loved this recipe, it was simple to put together and had a really authentic taste. I omitted the food colouring but otherwise made it as written. We'll be making this again, thanks! Made for Aussie Swap! :)

      Wonderful, a beautiful blend of Indian spices and an amazing aroma while cooking. I served with home-made yoghurt with some cumin mixed through along with steamed rice and a bit of salad. I went to buy some red food colouring but the store had run out and the closest available was called rose pink. I thought the small quantity wouldn't show through that much but boy was I wrong and the marinade was a bizarre pink colour, but it worked really well because after cooking and browning it turned to a very appetising red.

      I love tandoori chicken and this is really good. I prefer it grilled (I don't have a tandoori grill, though) but for being done in the oven, this really turned out nicely. I am going to give this a try when the weather permits some outdoor cooking! (I have to use up the BIG jar of tandoori paste I bought! :) )
