Tandoori chicken

          Tandoori chicken is most favorite dish for non-vegetarians. I have tried this dish many times but i am not satisfied by the texture . Either it will crispy out and not juicy inside. In conventional oven, i tried normal mode but the outer layer wont be that much crispier. Recently i tried broiler mode, tandoori chicken came out so so good, outside so crispy and inside juicy.

Ingredients :

Chicken leg - 2
Thick curd - 1/2 cup
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Chicken tandoori masala - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Lemon - 1/2

Chutney :

Cilantro or kothamali - 1/2 cup
Curd - 1/4 cup
Green chilli - 5
Ginger - 1 " piece
Salt - according to taste

                        Take a big bowl, add curd,chilli powder, tandoori masala powder,salt and mix it well. Now add chicken leg and marinate well. Transfer this to a plate and cover it with thin wrap and  refrigerate for 4 hours. After 4 hour, pre-heat the oven in broiler mode for 10 minutes. Take a oven safe plate and coat it with oil and place the chicken legs. Keep it inside conventional oven. Cook it for 20 minutes and take it out ,flip to other side and again keep it inside oven. Repeat this till the outer layer is crispy. Once done, poke with a fork to check whether it is cooked inside. Finally squeeze lemon on top.
            For chutney,just grind all the ingredients and serve it with tandoori chicken.

Note : 

*When you are keeping it in broiler mode, keep the tray in top layer stand.
* In conventional mode, the heat comes from bottom of the oven whereas in broiler mode, the heat comes        from top of the oven. That's why we should keep tray in top layer.
* When you are grilling something, use broiler mode.
