I am going to show you some great Indian cuisine.
I am going to show you how to make Chicken Tandoori. It's all very simple you just need great fresh ingredients so there we have then we have chicken I am going to use chicken I am going to use some Tandoori masala some fresh ginger some fresh garlic a little bit of salt some yogurt and this wonderful piece of curd if you are wondering what this is about wait on and see what we do and a bit of oil.
So, those all the ingredients and what we are going to do is actually mix two tablespoons of yogurt into the chicken I am going to add a little bit of Tandoori masala which you can get from any shop really two spoons of fresh ginger two spoons of fresh garlic teaspoons a little bit of salt a pinch of salt and then I am going to actually mix it all together and then we are going to just transfer it to this dish we are going to use a wonderful technique which maybe some of you would have heard of and is the smoking technique and it's really for all those of us who don't have barbeques in doors but one to replicate they really aroma the taste of the Tandoor which most people would have in India not in their homes but really out in restaurants, in road side cafes.
So, here we have the piece of coal which I put on a cooker now for those of you who are worried and don't have a gas cooker you can actually put it on electric hub and really let it get very-very hot that is the real secret to using coal and using the smoking technique which in India we call the Dhuaan technique which the technique of smoking.
It's a very old Indian tradition that was done like in the times of the Maharaja's and very well kept secret but I think was sold in the open that's have done enough time in front of so many peoples, so I take my piece of coal and I actually what's very important is to have a dish with a tightly fitting lid at hand I put the piece of the coal in there drop a few drops of oil in and if you see it start smoking and that smoke get trapped in and gives a wonderful smoky flavour to the chicken inside which let as a be there for 10-15 minutes and then remove the coal and grill the chicken you can see that wonderful-wonderful smoke in there swelling around and I can smell that lovely barbeque flavour which the chicken is going to be in fused with.
So, we have got our chicken that's being in there for 10 to 15 minute with the piece of coal that given it all that wonderful charcoal smoky flavour and a great new piece that you can actually use very easily in your home which gives a very professional touch to it is this electric grill and once you take your pieces of chicken and put it on there you can just grill it in a few minutes and it's ready to eat and ready to go.
Now, you can also if you don't have one of these put into the Owen and make sure that it's grilled nice and brown or you can actually use your barbeque outside but you already got a nice smoke flavour and you can add some more to it then.
So, there we have our chicken grilling very nicely on the hot grill but you have to make sure can you see that wonderful way it's getting the little stripes of brown chocolate of flavour there and the speckled which looks amazing and it's very-very important you have a really hot grill because that's the only way you are going to get that lovely look.
So, we have a wonderful fragrant chicken Tikka's Tandoori chicken ready to eat and putting them into the plate there and you can have it with this wonderful green chutney which is made with coriander, garlic and green chillies and this is chicken Tikka's or Chicken Tandoori which is a great favourite all around the world, so with green chutney which gives a that extra little bite. .
