Tandoori Chicken

You can make this using 1 whole chicken or cut the whole chicken into four or chicken drumsticks.
1 whole baby chicken
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tbsp
Chilli powder- 3 tsp
Pepper powder- 2 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- 1/2 lemon
Dried Mint- 1 tsp
Salt as required

Wash the chicken well, cut it into half, and slash it with a knife all over the chicken. Mix all the ingredients together and rub the paste over the chicken. Leave it to marinate for one whole night or 4 to 5 hours. Set the oven temperature to maximum. Grill the chicken on each sides for 20 minutes. To check the chicken is cooked or not prick it with a skewer or fork if the juice runs out clear it's done, take it out. If it's pink in colour leave it for some more time.
When the chicken is cooking serve the juices which is oozing out. Before serving heat a oil in a pan, cut slices of onion and saute it in oil, pour the juices from the chicken, add the chicken and turn it over, sprinkle some dried mint and squeeze some lemon juice on top of it.
Serve it hot.
