Things to know about Tandoori Chicken Recipe

The Indian Traditional Roasted Chicken or Tandoori Chicken is a type of roasted chicken marinated in yogurt and spices. The dish is made in a tandoor, which is a traditional metal oven. Hence, the name of the dish is “Tandoori Chicken”.

Tandoori Chicken originated in Punjab before the partition of India. It was popularized at Moti Mahal in Delhi by Kundan Lal Jaggi and Kundal Lal Gujral who were the founders of the Moti Mahal restaurant.

Tandoori Chicken is also a precursor of another famous Indian dish called Butter Chicken. The dish came into being when a tandoori chicken was left with tomatoes and butter overnight. Tandoori Chicken is garnished with onions and lemon wedges. The dish is served with steamed rice or various sauces or dips.
