Tangdi kabab, it is new to me..I was not familiar with that untill a viewer requested it. Then i searched online and got an idea about the recipe. I love roasting chicken in oven, since it is less fatty when compared to fried ones and it turn out so juicy.

Start by toasting gram flour in a dry pan till it turns nutty and couple shades darker. Your house will be filled with the aroma. Switch the heat off and set aside till use..
First take your cleaned chicken and make deep slashes in them.
In a large mixing bowl. Take chicken, and add in all the ingredients given in the ingredients except gram flour and butter.Mix well. Cover and let it marinate it for 2 hours.
Now when the marinating time is done.Take the chicken out and add in toasted gram flour and mix well.
