Indian/Tandoori/Yogurt Chicken

I had a sweet recipe for a 24hour marinade for boneless skinless chicken breasts, but i lost it.

It was a tandori style marinade, with a yogurt base, and some other spices and liquids.

Can anyone give me their fav marinade for this style?

will be marinating it for 24 hours then cooking it on a BBQ Pit.

yogurt is a must, to tenderize the meat.

That recipe from Andy M looks just right - I have a notebook with that cuisine but now I don't have to dig through - he's got it! Enjoy, David

Here is the recipe I use:

2 tbsp of freshly grated ginger
2 cups of plain yogurt
juice of 1 lime
3 tsp of freshly roasted and ground cumin
3tsp of freshly roasted and ground corrainder
2 tsp of red chili powder
few pinches of salt (to taste)
1 tsp of red food coloring
1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup of freshly chopped mint

Stir it all together (taste salt) and then pour over chicken. I prefer to marinate this overnight. I normally like to use thighs and legs with this marinade.

You can grill them or cook them in the oven.

It is traditional to serve them with sliced onions that have been grilled and slices of lime.

Good Morning! Can't sleep I guess. A question about yogurt and Indian cooking - have done a tiny bit with some success, at least I thought so. I have trouble with yogurt however - seems like I have that separation problem. How do I fix that? Thanks, David

Hi. Do you mean there's a lot of liquid in the yogurt? Two ways to fix that: 1) you can drain the yogurt before using by putting it in a cheesecloth-lined strainer over a bowl for a few hours, or 2) buy Greek-style yogurt, which is thicker and has less liquid to begin with. I buy it in a Mediterranean market that is part of a local restaurant.

Hope this is helpful.

heya legs, i've made allen's indian style yoghurt marinade, and it was really good. i used it on chunks of pork overnight, and the otherwise tough cut of meat was tender and tasty.

here's his post: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...bhi-35846.html

Well, here's my favorite mix that I do all the time. Of course, when you're in a hurry and don't want to do make it, you can head down to the local Indian butcher store and ask for tandoori chicken. They usually have a few pieces marinating and ready to go. Anyways, here's mine.

BTW, I use Patak's tandoori paste mix which isn't too bad but you can always buy what's available.


12 chicken drumsticks
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup tandoori paste
1 tbsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
dash of chilli powder
1 cup plain yoghurt
1 tsp salt
lemon wedges (to serve)


Remove chicken skin
Make a couple of deep cut on each side of the drumstick
Brush drumstick with 3/4 cup of lemon juice and set aside to marinate for 30 mins
Place garlic, ginger, tandoori paste, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, yoghurt, salt and remaining lemon jice in a small bowl and mix together till smooth
Place drumsticks in a large, shallow dish
Spread sauce over chicken, cover and refrigerate overnight
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Remove chicken from dish and place on a wire rack over large baking dish
Bake for 45 mins or till chicken is tender and cooked through
Serve with lemon wedges and steam rice

Run down to the local Indian butcher shop and buy some pieces ready to go? How far is it from Marion to your place? I must do that. No Indian butcher shops here - maybe Columbus about 45 miles? Na, I think I will just have to do my own. :) Yes, mango drinks and deserts are special, have made some and some rice and a few other things as well. I'm making myself hungry for a taste of India.

Oh sorry, I don't live in the States but in Vancouver, Canada. We have a local Indian community on Fraser St that sells these marinated pieces by the dozen. They usually come in tandoori sauce or butter sauce. Really good stuff especially if you want to do something exotic for your BBQ.

It's pretty easy to make the mango lassi. All I did was use the blender. Then add in yogurt and mango pieces. It's kinda like a mango milkshake.

To the Lady

Thanks for the invite! I guess I'ill have to go back to Columbus - there is an Indian buffet on the north side, the side nearest me. I've been there but was too late for the noon buffet. Guess my son the cook and I will have to go - he hasn't been but he enjoys HOT food.

Debbie, my recipe for chicken tikka was not the curry type its like the dry grilled kababs. If you a curry of the Chicken tikka, you can take a heavy bottom pan, add 5 tbsp oil and put the chicken with the marination mixture into it. On low heat cook it, stirring occasionally till the chicken gets cooked thoroughly and the raw smell of the yoghurt goes away. Enjoy :-)

I tried using vanilla flavored yogurt instead of the plain yogurt and it wasn't bad. I kinda like the sweetness to it. I know, weird but give it a try!
