Tandoori Chicken – On Stove top!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, You read it right..It is possible to make tandoori chicken on stove top infusing that smoky flavour and at the same ,juicy and succulent to the core….Its been six months since I have rejoined my work and although blogging has been reduced, my journey of baking has flourished now. My collegues are giving orders for my cakes and looking forward to the journey of cake making too.

The only time I can find to bake cakes is at night after my little one sleeps and maybe I am stressing out myself . But eventually my skills on baking improves with each baking which makes me all the more happier.

Also, I have settled down with my job at Office doing my work as Assistant Engineer with full dedication and hoping to do both the jobs with equal dedication. So far everything is good.
