Tandoori Murg (Grilled Chicken)

Who doesn’t know this succulent dish , Tandoori chicken is a dish popular on the Indian subcontinent consisting of roasted chicken prepared with yogurt and spices. The name comes from the type of cylindrical clay oven, a tandoor, in which the dish is traditionally prepared. But now a days the traditional tandoor is rare &  found only in restaurants 🙂 .This is my little brother Sunny’s fav 😉 This one is for you bro 🙂
