Tangri Kabab Recipe / Tangdi Kabab Recipe / Chicken Tangri Recipe

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. 

This recipe is so easy to make but so tasty to eat. I have made quite a few grilled recipes you can check them all here..This grilled chicken has a coating of toasted gram flour which makes it more tasty and flavourful. I made this last sunday and gave few pieces of this along with a box of butter chicken to my sister's college and they all loved it so much..

So hope you will try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..

    1. Do you mean put chicken on outdoors grill for 5 minutes or under the broiler in your oven for 5 minutes? I don't have convection oven, will regular do?

  15. @stardust451no u need convection oven to cook this

  16. Pl share some dish which we make it oven.we brought convection oven .we tried cake it did not come well so we stopped using oven

  17. @Peo Rubenit will come out good..check this post

  18. Don't cook chicken that long its gonna be over cooked it will take max 25 min. Not 1 hr. Better follow same recipe by sanjeev kapoor

  19. @abhijit naiksince you are cooking this on low temp, it will turn moist and juicy this way.

  20. I tried on 180 and it's done in 25 min

  21. @abhijit naikCooking time will vary depends on the size of the chicken.

  22. Lovely mouth-watering Kababs. I have a very basic doubt. While using Microwave Convection oven for grilled dishes, do we have to remove the turntable glass from the microwave before switching to grill? Is that glass grill-safe?
    I have been avoiding grilled dishes with a fear of cracking the glass. Please reply.

    Thanks in advance.

  23. @Pari Sno need to remove the turn glass table. it can be used in grill.

  24. Its looking yumm..at what temperature we should bake that.. 120 or 180?

  25. @Poojait is mentioned in the written part

  26. Hi Aarthi
    I have a morphy richards 28 Lts otg. It does have separate filament functions.when I use the bake option only the lower rod gets heated up .on toast mode both the road are heated.which one do I use?

  27. And is it the same for tandoori chicken as well.

    1. no it is a little different recipe
