Cut the chicken into pieces. In a bowl, add the chicken, lemon juice, tandoori spice and chili powder until the chicken is fully coated and red in color. Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes minimum.

Step 2

When the chicken is done marinated, add the yogurt and stir well to coat.

Step 3

In a pan, heat some vegetable oil or ghee, add the chicken with the yogurt sauce and cook on medium heat until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 4

When the chicken is done, add the freshly chopped coriander, stir once, and serve on top of basmati rice.

It's nice to serve fresh yogurt on the side.
