This is a classic BIR (British Indian Restaurant) tandoori dish. Tandoori food gets it's name from the tandoor ovens the food it cooked in. It gives off a lovely smoky flavour similar to that which you will get from The Curry Guy spice blends.
  • 8 skinned chicken thighs and/or legs on the bone
  • 100ml vinegar
  • Juice of two lemons
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon red food colouring (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red chilli powder
  • 4 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • ½ inch ginger - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon CURRY GUY smoked curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon CURRY GUY smoked garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon CURRY GUY cumin powder
  • 200ml plain yogurt
  • 5 tablespoon chopped coriander
  • CURRY GUY spicy salt blend to taste
  1. Using a sharp knive, make three shallow slits in each chicken thigh.
  2. Rub the vinegar, lemon juice, food colouring (if using) and salt into the chicken. Set aside.
  3. Now make the marinade. Place the rest of the ingredients up to the Curry Guy spicy salt in a blender and blend to a paste.
  4. Coat the chicken pieces with the marinade and allow to marinate for at least 3 hours or up to 48 hours. The longer the better.
  5. Place the chicken pieces under a hot grill leaving as much of the marinade on as you can. Turn the chicken regularly to avoid burning.
  6. The tandoori chicken is ready when the chicken is cooked through - about 30 minutes.

      Great to hear Huw! Just a few more weeks to go. I think you’re going to love them. Thanks for checking out the recipe. I’ll be posting many more free recipes using the spice in the next few weeks.
