This tandoor chicken, for instance, is perfect for those rare and special cooking adventures, which is nothing like those regular chicken dishes you’ve been making at home; yet it is super easy to make.

The only extra effort you have to put in is for gathering all the ingredients for this recipe, which you can easily find in your local grocery store or online market stores. Make this creamy and juicy hakeem tandoor chicken for those evenings when you are badly missing restaurant food.

You just have to marinate chicken in a mixture of curd, cream, black cardamom powder, nihari masala, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, yellow chilli powder, saffron water, rose water, white butter, clove powder, mint, cashew paste, roasted chana powder, coconut milk powder, and a few common spices.

And then, just skewer the chicken pieces in oven or tandoor till they turn brown and tender.

COOKING TIP: To bake in oven, place the chicken on oven roasting rack, roast at 230 degrees C for five minutes.
