Tandoori Chicken

We had some relatives over for the Raya weekend. Tried out this tandoori chicken recipe. Taste was good but next time I'll add some red coloring to get the restaurant look :)

Chicken (cut into small pieces) - 1/2
Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Chili powder - 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Ginger powder - 1 tbsp
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Garlic (minced) - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Prick the flesh of the chicken all over with a fork and marinate the chicken pieces with all the above ingredients for a good 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Remove chicken from marinade and place on a rack in a roasting pan, brush with oil, and cook 25-30 minutes, turning once.
Juices should run clear when a piece is pierced near the bone with a knife.
Garnish with cilantro leaves, red onions, tomatoes and lemon wedges.
