Tandoori Murghi

juice of 1 lg or 2 sm lemons
2 t sweet paprika
1 t yellow colouring
1 1/4 t red colouring
1 1/2 t meat tenderizer

2t garam masala
1 C plain yogurt
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1" cube peeled ginger, chopped
1" X 3" green hot pepper, seeded, chopped or 1/4t - 1/2t cayenne
1 t ground cumin

2 1/2 to 3lbs chicken parts, skinned

Mix in small bowl lemon juice, paprika, food coloring, tenderizer
and salt.

Puree garam masala, yogurt, onion, garlic, ginger, pepper, and

Slit the chicken pieces about every 1" and almost down to the bone

for 20-25 minutes or until they're just done. Test them to be

Serve hot, with lime wedges on a bed of lettuce, with sliced tomatoes
and onions.

When I make Murgh Saag, I use peas (I'm not too fond of spinach
and I've had it in restaurants done with peas), I chop up some
tandoori murgh instead of using raw chicken. This idea comes from
restaurant versions I've had, too.
