Raody Tandoori Chicken (Veggie-friendly alternative included!)

Raody Tandoori Chicken (Veggie-friendly alternative included!)


  • 2 lbs chicken thighs or drumsticks (if vegetarian, use 1 12 oz package of paneer or extra firm tofu!)

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or ghee

  • 1/4 cup full fat yogurt

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder or cayenne

  • 5 tbsp Pure Indian Foods Seasoning OR mix 1 tsp coriander, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tbsp garam masala, 4 cloves garlic grated, 2 tbsp ginger grated

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 2.5 tsp salt (or more to taste)

  • Cilantro, sliced red onions and lemon wedges for garnish (optional)


  1. Heat tandoori Seasoning, turmeric and cayenne on low heat on a dry pan mixing constantly so it doesn’t burn for 3-4 minutes.

  2. Then, take roasted spices (or homemade spice mix) and place in blender with yogurt along with lemon juice, honey, and salt. Blend until fully combined.


  3. Coat chicken (thighs or drumsticks) in the marinade and place in a covered dish or ziplock bag in the fridge. Let the chicken marinate for at least 4 hours or 10-12 hours for best results.

  4. Once chicken is done marinating, place on baking sheet and bake in oven at 450 degrees F for 45 minutes. Broil for 5 more minutes on high so chicken browns a bit.

  5. Garnish with chopped cilantro, red onions, and lemon wedges. Serve hot!


    1. If using paneer or tofu instead of chicken for vegetarians, chop block of paneer or tofu into 1 inch cubes. Make sure tofu is extra-firm and is drained of water. Marinate in sauce for 2-3 hours. Bake in oven for 20 minutes (flipping halfway) at 400 degrees F.

  6. Serve hot with slices of yellow onion and/or tomatoes on the side!
