Very Good! I tried this recipe and it came out good. I would like to recommend some minor changes to this recipe. Instead of 3 tsps. add 1 1/2 tsp. Kashmiri Red chilli powder, instead of 4 tsps. add 2 tsps. Spice Mix for Tandoori and instead of 4 tsps. add 1/2 tsp. All spice powder. I did not cooked 2-3 chicken at a time, but instead cooked all of them at the same time in a big pan and add some water when the chicken seemed to be drying out. I added the fresh coriander without frying as garnish. Thank you!

Its a really good recipe. I baked it too and it was better than frying. Less calories also the marination stays better while baking rather than frying

if you will add some curd in it it will taste much better & in place of frying make it in oven it will be less faty.
