Tandoori Chicken legs With Puff pastry

Tandoori chicken is always my hubby's favorite snack. I prepare this for every special event in my house. This time I want to try something different but I do not want to disappoint him, by not making tandoori chicken. So, I tried keeping the tandoori taste same but wrapped it in a puff pastry and he liked it very much. It not only tasted wonderful but also looked like something that a professional chef presents. He was so surprised to learn that I made it. My love and bond for cooking is very strong, and getting very intense that it is  making me very professional everyday. If I were allowed to do something other than studies, then I would  immediately take spoon in one hand to cook and camera in one hand to capture frame to frame of my recipes and share with you all. My passion for cooking and photography is that zealous.


Now coming to the recipe


Ingredients:
Chicken legs---7
Curd/Yoghurt---1cup
Tandoori barbecue/barbeque masala----4ts
