What does the tandoori chicken go with?

Tandoori chicken goes with rice, naan bread, a cool salad and mint yogurt.

Think about adding light and plain sides such as rice and salad, plus a heartier accompaniment like naan bread drizzled with a yoghurt and mint dip to add coolness.

In the recipe below I have given my tandoori chicken recipe an Australian twist.

Is tandoori chicken good for weight loss?

Tandoori chicken is served as a healthy and yummy source of protein. Protein helps induce the feeling of fullness that helps keep your food cravings in check.

Since tandoori goods are not smeared in heavy, creamy or fattening gravies, they make for an ideal addition to a healthy weight loss diet.

Tandoori spices can be used without the addition of yogurt, but I would not recommend it.

What is special about tandoori chicken?

tandoori chicken is a dish of roasted chicken marinated in yogurt and generously spiced, giving the meat its trademark red colour. It is named for the cylindrical clay oven in which it is cooked, a tandoor. The dish is attributed to Kundan Lal Gujral, a Hindu from Punjab state who fled newly formed Pakistan after the 1947 partition of India and opened a restaurant in DelhiLearn more here.

What is the accompaniment for tandoori food?

Think about adding light and plain sides such as rice salad with beans and avocado salad, plus a heartier accompaniment like naan bread drizzled with a yoghurt and mint dip to add coolness. I like adding a dark and sweet balsamic vinaigrette, to add some colour, acid and flavour contrasts.

Can you eat tandoori chicken cold?

Tandoori chicken should be eaten using your hands.

You can either pick up the piece and take small bites from the meat like you would do a peach, sucking in the juices. Yes, you can eat tandoori chicken cold, but it is better steaming hot and fresh.

Is tandoori chicken healthy?

Tandoori chicken is very healthy! It is marinated in a yogurt-based sauce that is full of seasonings that add vitamins and nutrients.

It is a sheer delight for all non-vegetarian lovers, courtesy of its exclusive taste.

Chicken is rich in proteins and fats. It contains no carbohydrates. If we talk about chicken legs, it contains almost 18g of fat and 20 gm of protein. Its wings also have almost the same amount of fat protein.

But chicken breast is a lean source of protein and is highly recommended for all those looking to grow muscles. I would think tandoori chicken would suit a keto diet.
