Notes

This recipe requires hung curd, or any thick yogurt; without it, the chicken pieces won’t marinade properly and will taste bland.

Use the finest tandoori masala you can afford; it will make a world of difference.

Marinating over night is essential. Sometimes I let it marinade for a full day.

Using chicken on the bones ensures tender and juicy tandoori chicken every time.

For this dish, avoid using breast or boneless chicken pieces as they will result in dry tandoori chicken pieces.

To obtain the true taste of tandoori, avoid substituting any other oil for the mustard oil.

When baking, always use a wire rack to keep your chicken pieces from getting sweaty and mushy.

For five minutes, broil it on high to get the charred look. Don’t omit this step.

Indeed, plain yogurt can be replaced with Greek yogurt. For the marinade to have the proper consistency, you might need to thin it up with a little water.
