Tandoori Chicken - Microwave cooking

I was lamenting about the microwave that we got very recently. yep..I went for couple of microwave cooking class and the trainer showed me this dish.

I tried as soon as i got back home. It came out well.


Chicken - 1/2 kg
1 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp curd
1 tbsp pepper
Little soyasauce
Food color (optional)
Maida for binding
1 tbsp salt

Method of preparation:

Mix all the ingredients mentioned above and marinate for 1-2 hours.

Smear some oil on top of the pieces and in convention mode, preheat the oven to 180 degree C for 20 mintues and then when the beep sound comes, load the oven with chicken and cook for another 20 mintues. After 10 mintues, turn over the chicken piece.

It came out nice and crispy…I garnished with capsicum.

My daughter said that it will tastes better if you have squeezed some lemon juice on top of it..yeah..i forgot...She is a definitely a critic...i have to watchout.
