Tangdi Kebab is a Chicken drumstick that is cooked in a tandoor or clay oven. The recipe can vary from Kalmi - a cream cheese marination, to a spicy, red Chilli Tandoori margination and finally the green or hara recipe made with Coriander green Chilli. In this recipe I make the milder Kalmi Kebab. The Chicken drumsticks are marinated twice, first with lime juice, salt pepper, ginger garlic paste and followed with a more elaborate marinade made with hung yogurt, cheese, spices, green chilli, dried fenugreek, ginger garlic and cream. This is then smoked on the BBQ. The literal translation for Tangdi is leg, referring to a Chicken leg.
