or to taste
Red Chili powder

Oil for frying
For Tandoori Chicken Filling
In a large bowl add the chicken cubes. Now add ginger and garlic paste, salt, red chili powder, tandoori masala, yogurt, lemon juice, and oil.
Mix well so that the chicken is evenly coated. Marinate for 10 minutes.
Heat a pan over medium heat. Add the marinated chicken and cook for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is done. Using a spoon or a knife, break the chicken pieces into small bits.
Transfer the chicken to a bowl and allow to cool a little.
Add the perinaise to the chicken and mix well. Taste check and adjust seasoning if needed.
For Braided Tandoori Chicken Bread
Take each bread slice and cut off the edges. Then using a rolling pin flatten the bread slice to thin. Cut off any rough edges.
Now take a tablespoon of the tandoori chicken filling and place it in the center of the bread.
Using a pizza roller or a knife, cut strips on each side of the bread leaving about 1/2 an inch at the top and the bottom
Brush water on all the sides of the bread. Now take the strips and fold them over each other, lightly pressing in the center to form the braid.
Keep applying water on the strips as you go on braiding to secure it. Firmly press the top and bottom to seal the bread and hold the filling in.
Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Fry the chicken bread until golden.
Serve immediately with your choice of dip and enjoy!
If you don't have perinaise use 2 tbsp mayonnaise and mix in 1/2 tbsp of tomato sauce.
You can avoid frying and opt to bake the chicken bread. Just brush the bread with oil and bake for 8-10 minutes at 180 degrees.
You can substitute tandoori filling with any filling of your choice
