Tandoori-style chicken in the oven plus a nice veggie side?

linguafood | Mar 30, 2010 09:29 AM

I'm craving oven-baked/roasted/broiled (whichever works best?) tandoori-style chicken...

I have a great collection of Indian spice mixtures, so getting that right is the least of my worries. My plan is to marinate the chicken pieces (sl&bl thighs, most likely) in yogurt, ginger, cayenne, garlic, and the tandoori mix for a few hours, then throw it in the oven.

Anyone recommend a particular method over another? I've seen recipes for broiling, which is probably the fastest, but does roasting in the oven make sense, too?

Also, should I keep the thighs on a rack in order for them to get a uniform char on the outside?

Last but certainly not least, a great Indian veggie dish that is NOT too complicated would be the perfect side -- I'm already serving Basmati rice and a cuke & yogurt salad...

ANY tips are, as always, highly appreciated!
