Cornish Hen is what is closely classified as a chuza you can get from a supermarket. Not to mention that this was my first time making a tandoori of a whole cornish hen!
I marinated the little less than 500 gms whole chicken in half cup of plain yogurt, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp white vinegar, 1 tsp garlic paste, 1 tsp ginger paste, 1 tsp green chili paste, 1 tsp red chili powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, few drops of red food color and salt.
Since its a small chicken, I marinated it only for about five hours. Since I do not have a tandoor here, I use my reliable oven to make tandoori dishes. Pre-heat the broiler on high, brush the chicken with some vegetable oil on all sides.
You can also make this on a charcoal barbeque!
