Tandoori Aloo Chicken Recipe

Though I am immensely interested in cooking something nice and healthy for myself over weeknights, its almost always never possible. Simply because I am lazy or blame it on tiredness. In such situations, there is a place that we order take out from called Surabhi Restaurant. Once, I ordered tandoori chicken kabab as an appetizer for dinner. There was quite a lot leftover and I just stashed it in the fridge, thinking I will deal with it the next day.
