Tandoori Masala


  • Chicken (cut into4-8 pieces)   1 ½ kg
  • Vinegar   ½ cup (140ml)
  • Salt    3 tbsp
  • Water   1 ½ cup (420 ml)
  • Yoghurt (whipped)   ½ cup (125g)
  • Ginger paste   1 tbsp
  • Garlic paste   1 tbsp
  • Oil/ghee   3 tbsp
  • Regal’s Tandoori Masala mix   50g (1 packet)

Cooking method

1. Make deep cuts on chicken pieces. Mix the vinegar, salt and water together. Add chicken into this mix and leave for 1 hour.

2. Now take the chicken out and give a single rinse with plain water. Mix Regal Tandoori Masala mix, yoghurt ginger and garlic to create a paste and apply thoroughly on chicken pieces. Marinate for at least 1 hour.

3. Preheat the oven at 180”C.

4. Grease a tray with oil/ghee and place the chicken pieces on it.

5. Apply oil/ghee on the chicken pieces and bake for 35 to 45 minutes.

6. Once the chicken is roasted partly, turn on the grill for 5 minutes and grill the chicken until ready.

Cooking without an oven:

1. Follow instructions up to the second step.

2. Grease a heavy pan and spread the chicken pieces on it.

3. Cook at high flame for 5 minutes then reduce the flame and cook for a further 10-15 minutes until the water has completely dried.

4. For a barbeque aroma, place a burning charcoal between the chicken pieces and put a little oil/ghee on it, then cover for 1-2 minutes.


Delicious Tandoori Masala is ready. Serve hot with naan, salt and raita.
