Tandoori Chicken
For 12 pieces :

12 pieces of chicken (drum sticks or thighs)
1/2 cup tandoori chicken powder (you get them in Indian Grocery stores)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Salt as required
2 lime

1 whole white onion
1 green red bell-pepper (optional)
1 red bell-pepper (optional)

Skin the chicken pieces and make 3-4 deep cuts on each one of them.

Mix yogurt, tandoori powder, mustard oil and salt as required

Mix the paste with chicken pieces and let it stand for at least 6

After marinatingd is done, arrange pieces in tray, cover with foil
bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

Reduce heat to 250 F, and then bake and broil alternately in 30
min. cycles for 2 hrs. Occasionally, take the tray, out, and
rearrange the chicken pieces before putting them back in. If there
is too much water inside, drain the water. If the chicken pieces
look too dry, sprinkle some water mixed with lime juice on them

After baking is done, take the pieces out and brush off the excess
tandoori paste from them. Put the pieces in an open tray in the
oven for 2-3 minutes( just to get them look crisp and dry.)

You can add a garnishing of stir-fried onions and bell-peppers and
lime juice on the chicken before serving. It should be served hot.
