Authentic Tandoori Chicken Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 text recipe

Recipe Preparation

Make a marinade of yoghurt, lime juice, chilli powder or paprika, five
spice powder (we would used "garam masala" which is a powder of
cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper corns) paste
of green chillis, ginger-garlic paste, a pinch of red food colouring
and salt. Marinate it for at least three to four hours (leaving it
overnight would be best). Then heat your oven, pop the chicken pieces
in an oven-proof dish, pour in a little of the marinade and for the
effect of the "tandoor" place a piece of live-coal in your oven (it
gives a wonderful aroma). It takes around 10-15 minutes to get done
but around half way open the oven and brush the chicken with oil.
Make sure not to overdo it. It should be just done for the chicken to
be nice and succulent. When it is nice and dry serve it on a bed of
lettuce with lemon wedges (which could also be squeesed on the
chicken before serving) and a sprig of parsley.

Tandoori is a style of cooking which is close to grilling. In olden
times it used to be done in big clay pots which used to be put under
the ground for the meat to cook..but now we have "tandoors" or ovens
could be used too.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried foods. Although you can probably buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight container.

* Make great smoothies by using reduced carb yogurt. Yes, itís not technically cooking, but if you adore smoothies you can make them with reduced carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use all of the fruit as the fiber is important too.

Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.

In addition to their many other great health properties, the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
