I have used Tandoori chicken masala from Everest. Use any tandoori masala powder of your chocie.
You can bake it for about 10 to 12 minutes in OTG or till its done.
I have used russet potatoes. The potatoes that you get here in USA really works the best. You can even use baby potatoes in this recipe.
