  • 1 pinch of black pepper
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of molasses or tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt


  • Wash the chicken well, rub it with vinegar and tahini, and set it aside in a colander
  • Let's start with the tandoori mix
  • Stir the spices over a low heat until they are well roasted, and then leave them aside for 5 minutes
  • Take about 3 and a half tablespoons of the spice mixture and add it to the yogurt, tomato molasses and olive oil
  • Mix these ingredients well
  • Put the chicken thighs in an oven tray
  • Grease the chicken thighs with the tandoori marinade that you have prepared
  • Leave the chicken to soak in the tandoori seasoning for about 6 hours and put it in the fridge
  • After the required time has passed, we put the chicken thighs marinated in tandoori in the oven on a high heat and cook them until they are well cooked for about 5 minutes per side
  • In the last 10 minutes, we turn on the oven from the top to get the beautiful reddish color of the chicken
  • Serve and enjoy your dish!
