Tandoori style chicken with basmati rice and mint ratia

Tandoori chicken gets its name from the oven in which it is traditionally prepared. It is a bell-shaped oven made out of tandoor clay. This oven is also used to make the traditional naan bread. Chicken thighs are marinated in a mixture of yogurt, lemon juice and spices, and the meat is cut to the bone in several places to help the sauce penetrate and the chicken cooks faster. Meal rich in proteins and antioxidants.
