  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix milk with lemon juice and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then add the rest of the marinating ingredients.

  5. Refrigerate the chicken at least 4 hours or overnight is best. 
  6. In a heavy bottomed ball, prepare the flour coating by mixing flour, baking powder, Tandoori Masala, salt and dried herbs. 
  7. Slightly beat the eggs in a bowl. 
  8. Now take a piece of chicken from the milk and put it directly in to the flour mixture and coat well. 
  9. Then dip it into the beaten egg mixture. Put it back to the flour mixture again and coat well.
  10. Repeat the coating by dipping it in the eggs and then coat again in the flour mixture. (the chicken should be coated twice)
  11. Place the chicken in a tray or plate. 
  12. Repeat the same with all the chicken pieces.
  13. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and when the oil is hot, deep fry the coated chicken pieces for about 5-7 minutes or until golden colour. 
  14. Drain the chicken and transfer in to serving dish lined with paper towels. Serve hot! Enjoy!

  • The reason for using Tandoori chicken Masala powder is, all the ingredients required such as garlic powder, paprika powder, ginger powder, cumin powder etc are available in the Masala powder. It is very easy to use Tandoori chicken Masala powder into this.
