Africa: Mauritius: Mauritian Tandoori Chicken

Africa: Mauritius: Mauritian Tandoori Chicken



8 skinless chicken legs

1 tsp salt



1 tbsp ground coriander

1 tbsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 tbsp cayenne

1 tbsp garam masala

2 tbsp sweet paprika

200 ml natural yoghurt

juice of 1 lemon

3 garlic cloves, finely minced



Place all the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.

Place the chicken legs into a dish and slash the meat a few times each to create grooves.

Rub the marinade into the chicken, ensuring it gets right into the grooves to enable it to permeate through the meat. Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least two to three hours, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas 5. Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
