Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

Tandoori chicken is a very popular Pakistani dish, and every household is guaranteed to have their own recipe. I will be honest with you I always change the way I make chicken tandoori depending on the spices I have in the kitchen. This recipe is the most common way I make it.

We haven’t actually had these chicken tandoori legs in so long. My siblings aren’t fond of anything in the oven because they always want to have everything fried. I have been trying my utmost best to not fry so much food, but with Ramadan now here all my siblings seem to want at iftar is fried food. With that being said I did make these for iftar the other day and they went down a treat. I also tried out a peri peri wing recipe that day, and it didn’t really turn out the greatest, but I suppose failing is part of the learning process.

On Instagram I saw this reel on paratha samosas and they looked sooooo good. I want to try those out. I actually want to try out a lot of things out, but the only problem is when my experiments and new recipes fail (which they often do) there is no one to eat the food. Well, I say that, but I always force my siblings to eat the food I make whether it was nice or not.

Now, if you’re thinking this fool seems to have more failures than successes, you would be correct. However, I always make sure that the recipes I put up are tried and tested and actually do taste good. Trust me when I say if you think you can’t cook or won’t be able to cook, then look at me! Cooking is one of those things that you can learn. It just takes practice and over time you will learn to adapt to your own style of cooking, and you won’t want to stop!

These tandoori style chicken leg pieces are the perfect starter for your dinner table.
