Indian cuisine is usually very long and complex and involves a mix of many different spices. You can tell that Indians love their food filled with lots of flavors.
Authentic Indian food in Leesburg, Virginia, or anywhere else in the United States for that matter, is hard to come by. It is best to ask for some recommendations from your Indian friends.
One other option is to create an Indian dish yourself! It may not be as authentic as can be but at least you’ll get to taste how delicious Indian food is. So, we made this article to teach you how to cook one of their famous dishes, Tandoori Chicken. Here’s how:
- First Step
Separate the skin from the chicken pieces and cut some slits lengthwise. Marinate it with salt and lemon juice for 20 minutes.
- Second Step
Create a yogurt mixture and spread it all over the chicken. Mix yogurt, ginger, garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, and garam masala in a bowl. Cover it and place it in the fridge for 6 hours to a day or more for better taste.
- Third Step
Preheat your grill in medium to high heat and grease it.
- Fourth Step
Cook the chicken until the pink color is gone and there are no more juices. Garnish it with lemon wedges and cilantro.
Indians usually serve this dish with grilled veggies, cucumber salad, roasted corn on the cob, and long grain Basmati rice. They also finish it off with an Indian ice cream called Kulfi.
