This is a very simple version of tandoori chicken that you can make in a jiffy. You start it off on the stove top and you finish cooking in the oven. Or if you prefer, finish it on the barbecue for that extra charred flavour.
It doesn’t take long to prepare if you have the ingredients available at home. It does get quite messy when you skewer the chicken pieces though but might be a fun group activity if you are cooking with friends.
You can make this recipe as a starter or a main course or even as one of the many meat dishes to serve at a barbecue. We served this with a Karahi Okra and Potato curry with some home made roti.
This recipe is from L’atelier de s Chefs cooking school where we recently did a class cooking on the fabulous Tefal Ingenio Cookware with detachable handles. They are quite a unique design for cooking pans. You can read my full review of them here.
