Now put one piece of flaming hot charcoal into that small bowl, then put 1 tbsp of ghee or butter over hot charcoal, you can see smokes comes out from that charcoal now suddenly cover the chicken marination by the airtight lid to store the smoke into the marination bowl now set aside for 3 hours for good flavor and taste. (More you keep the marination, the better taste & flavor will come).

  • After proper marination, you have to sear the marinated chicken pieces over a nonstick Tawa or pan. After searing all the chicken pieces keep aside the tandoori chicken pieces for later use.
