Directions: How to Cook Tandoori Chicken 5

Skin the chicken drumsticks, wash thoroughly and dry on absorbent paper. Slash them with a sharp pointed knife.

Rub in the lemon juice and sprinkle with salt.

Blend the ginger and garlic in a blender with 1 Tbs water, then mix with the coriander, cumin, chilli powder, paprika, red food colouring, garam masala and pepper and stir into yoghurt.
