Tandoori chicken is marinated in a blend of spices (known as tandoori masala), along with yogurt, ginger, garlic and lemon before cooking it in the traditional “tandoor” oven. A tandoor oven is an outdoor clay oven that reaches extremely hot temperatures to give a charred and deep flavour to your food. If you’re like me, and most people, you don’t have a tandoor oven hanging around for an occasion such as this. An oven or BBQ grill will do just fine
