Ingredients

  • 1 kg. Chicken-cut into medium size pieces

  • 1/2 ½ tsp. ginger (Adrak) paste

  • 1 tsp. Garlic (Lehsan)-paste

  • 1 bunch Fresh Coriander (Dhaniya) -eaves

  • 3 Green Chilies

  • 1 Onion-medium size

  • 1 tsp Garam Masala-powder

  • 4 Red Chili-whole dried

  • 2 tsp. Salt (adjust to taste)

  • 6 tbsp. Yogurt OR

  • 3 tbsp. Lemon Juice

Directions

  • Mix all the spices together. Put in a blender and make a paste.
  • Make 4-5 deep cuts on each side of the chicken pieces. This will help it cook better on the inside as well as giving it a better flavour.
  • Coat the pieces with the paste and leave to marinate for a few hours preferably overnight in fridge.
  • BBQ or bake in oven.
  • If baking in the oven use an aluminum tray covered with foil for the first 20 minutes at
    3750 F.
  • Uncover, turn the chicken over, and cover it up again. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. By this time the chicken should be cooked.
  • Increase the temp to 450 o F , uncover and bake until the top is dry and the cuts that you made have ‘opened up’.
  • Turn over and when it looks done – it’s done!
  • Serve with salad and paratha or naan.
