Tandoori Chicken originated in the dhabas of North India and has now become popular world wide. Essentially a roast chicken prepared in a mud lined coal fired oven called tandoor. But it is the marinade that distinguishes this style of roasting chicken from other types of roast. So if you own a tandoor that’s great, but if you don’t you can still prepare authentic Tandoori Chicken in a electrical or gas oven.
