Chicken Tandoori (Air Fried)

Cuisine: Indian

Main Description.

Cooked in Air Fryer, Absolutely no Oil….

Very simple recipe

One of India’s Gem Recipe is Chicken Tandoori,

It is a dish prepared by roasting chicken marinated in yogurt and spices in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven.
The dish originated from the Indian subcontinent and is popular in many other parts of the world.

Since it is not practical to have a cylindrical oven at home, you can pan fry or Air fry it.

This is the first recipe that actually got me interested in cooking, this is my personal favourite.


  • 500 GMs chicken with bone (Full leg piece preferably)

    Add salt to taste

    1.5 Tablespoon Garlic Paste

    1/2 Tablespoon Ginger paste

    2 Tablespoon Kashmiri Lal mirch powder

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric powder

    2 Tablespoon Curd. 

    Mix well

    Use Charcoal smoke after marination (Optional)



  • 01

    In an Air-fryer, place the chicken with absolutely no oil.

  • 02

    Keep it at 180 degrees 25 mins to max 30 mins

  • 03

    Keep flipping the chicken 7 to 10 mins each side.

  • If you do not have charcoal, hold the chicken with a steel tongs and open fry on the Gas Burner for 20 to 30 seconds to achieve the grill marks.
  • Use Kashmiri Powder which gives a nice Red Colour.
  • Make incision on the chicken with the knife and Make sure the marination goes inside the cuts.
