Tandoori chicken is a popular Indian dish consisting of roasted chicken prepared with yogurt and spices. Today Thanks giving is celebrated throughout US and it’s a tradition to cook roasted turkey on this occasion. I decided to roast chicken instead of turkey.
A bit about Thanksgiving . Thanksgiving is a holiday in the USA and Canada when people give thanks. It is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of November in the USA and on the second Monday of October in Canada.The Thanksgiving holiday is a four-day holiday over the weekend. Families and friends usually eat a special meal together (usually with a turkey as the main dish). This meal also usually includes mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, several casseroles, and stuffing.
