Tandoori Chicken ~ Pan Fried Tandoori Chicken Roast

After doing a month long Blogging Marathon, managing to share some of those recipes here, I am back to a Non Vegetarian Starter that we prepared for the Kids last week. This is from Amma's Diary, as I said she has been on a target to try all her written down recipes.

This recipe typically uses Tandoori Masala. I have made Tandoori Masala at home. You can either make your own Homemade Tandoori Masala or get a ready made masala as well. We planned this after having the breakfast out, and decided it will be heavy for a lunch. Hence this chicken marinade sat for nearly 5 -6 hrs in the fridge.

When we say Tandoori, we refer to two things. First is the method this is prepared. In the Tandoori Ovens that uses coal and is a deep Indian style oven. And typically the Tandoori made Chicken uses a specific masala, referred as the Tandoori Masala.

In today's preparation, I have not followed the Tandoori Style of Cooking. However the chicken is prepared using the Tandoori Masala.
Tandoori Chicken

Ingredients Needed:

Chicken - 1 kg
Tandoori Masala - 3 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 3/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Curds - 3/4 cup
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Food colour a tiny pinch
Oil - 2 tsp
Oil for cooking

How to make the Tandoori Chicken Roast

Wash and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Take in a bowl, add in all the other ingredients, except the oils and mix well. Refrigerate for atleast 4 -5 hrs.

Then along with the marinade, add 2 tsp of oil, pressure cook for 2 -3 mins. Chicken gets cooked very fast, so don't wait for the whistle to go.

Once the pressure falls, if there is lot of water, cook till the water evaporates.

Heat a non stick pan, add oil and roast the tandoori chicken in batches.

This goes for the September Week 4, Cooking from Cookbook Challenge  Group.

This is an different twist to the normal version. But, this can be ideally prepared at home, should we wait for 2-3 minutes till the cooker steams up or is it tottaly 2-3 minutes?
