Tandoori Chicken Puffs Recipe | How To Make Tandoori Chicken Puffs
These tandoori chicken puffs do not require a long list of ingredients to make. All you have to do is marinate the boneless chicken pieces along with yoghurt, haldi, red chilli powder, and ginger-garlic paste. You could also add a few drops of lemon juice for a kick of flavour. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for around half an hour. Once done, heat some oil in a pan and place the marinated chicken in it. Cook until fully done and keep aside. Next, take the puff pastry sheets and cut them into the desired shape. Place the prepared tandoori chicken filling in the centre of each, and seal it nicely from all the edges. Do not forget to brush it with beaten egg to give it that golden brown colour, just like the ones you get at the market. Now, just pop them in a preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees C. Your homemade tandoori chicken puffs are ready!
