What is Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori is a style of cooking from the Indian subcontinent that refers to cooking food in a clay oven, which is also called a Tandoor. most conventional Tandoori chicken is marinated in yogurt and vibrant spices earlier than it is roasted in the clay oven.

On the grounds that most people don’t have clay ovens, there are other ways we will reflect the cooking methods with our own kitchen appliances which include an oven, outside grill, or Air Fryer.
