5. Heat the tawa and add a tsp of butter and roast well the pieces in low flame. Keep flipping the other sides to get cooked evenly.

Chicken Tandoori

  •  You can either use Flat bottom thick kadai/pan or else use the curved iron tawa. I tried on both and it came out similar.
  • Because it takes about 20 minutes for a single piece to cook I tried out to fry using both burners.
  • Felt that either of this wont give out perfect, but both pieces gave a similar touch of cooking. 

Tandoori on Iron Tawa

  •  Adding Red chili powder is purely optional as I needed for bit spicier taste. 
  • Rub well the paste all over and deep inside the slits  and then leave for marination.
  • I do not have a grill pan so felt to try out on tawa or kadai....which turned out really awesome with the tangy lemon taste from the roasted slits.
  • "Keep covered" to avoid oil bursts and sprays on you.
  • Remove the burnt masalas leaving in oil if any.

One of iron tawa & other is thick kadai
