The chicken is marinated in yougurt and seasoned with the spice mixture tandoori masala that is considered moderately piquant in North India and Pakistan, but too spicy in most Western nations.
In milder versions, both red and yellow food coloring are sometimes used to achieve bright colors, but turmeric powder is both mild and brightly colored, as is paprika, a sweet red pepper powder.
Tandoori chicken originated in the Punjab before the independence of India and Pakistan.
In India, tandoori cooking was traditionally associated with the Punjab and became popular in the mainstream after the 1947 partition when Punjabis resettled in places such as Delhi. In rural Punjab, it was common to have communal tandoors.
