Tandoori Chicken Preparation

Tandoori chicken is my all time favorite chicken starter recipe. I used to order this tandoori chicken almost everytime we go out for restaurants. Though I have tasted it numerous times at the restaurants, I never thought of giving it a try at home. This is my very first attempt of making it at home and it turned out to be a superhit. I was so excited that I could cook my favorite recipe at home. The most important thing in preparing tandoori chicken is the time we marinate it. It tastes really good, if it is kept for overnight marination.
