Name of the dish : Tandoori Gobhi

This Pendemic situation has changed our routine. Now going out and dining at your favourite place is restricted. So why not to prepare tempting food at home and impress family members, make them feel happy, also be praised for your culinary skill…

When we talk about multi course meal, , appetizers or starters are always a choice. Probably, many times we enjoy it more than the main dish. While making it at home, my preference is non fried one.

Tandoori gobhi is a starter which falls to North Indian cuisine. The preparation of North Indian food sometimes needs extra efforts but outcome is scrumptious. You can prepare it using stove top cooking method. Alternatively you can bake it too.

1 tbsp curd
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp tandoori masala
