Garlic Spinach Infused Tandoori Chicken Recipe

Features:
    Cuisine:

    I won't rate this because I didn't use tandoori paste, used dry tandoori (don't do this, folks, trust me!). Also, I didn't have lemon juice. But it turned out somewhere near awful. The marinade clinged to the chicken, and when it cooked, the yogurt curdled so it really had an unappealing texture and a funny taste.

    Apart from my unfortunate experience, the recipe is probably great, except that there were no indications regarding the size of the cubes or the way to put them on the skewers or to handle the skewers, so I must've done something (another thing) wrong, because after 8 minutes in the oven it wasn't cooked, even though I thought I had cut the pieces quite small. So I put the skewers under the broiler, 2 minutes on each side, and then the cooking was OK.

    I will try this again when I have more chicken, this time I will use lemon and make tandoori paste instead of dry tandoori. I thought this recipe had potential, but I really messed it up XD
