How to make it

  • Run garlic through a press, or finely mince.
  • Grate ginger.
  • Mix together yogurt, oil, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and spices.
  • Make diagonal slashes in the chicken meat to allow marinade to penetrate better. Pour yogurt mixture over chicken parts.
  • Marinate for 4 hours at room temperature, or overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally. If the chicken is placed in the refrigerator, bring it to room temperature before cooking (approximately 1 hour).
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Brush grill or shallow baking pan with a little oil to keep chicken from sticking. Arrange chicken on the pan.
  • Broil chicken 2-3 inches away from the heat until cooked through, approximately 25 minutes, turning halfway through.
  • Serve hot with basmati rice or naan (Indian flatbread).

    My friend said this was perfect. Just like home in India. It wasn't hard to make.

    Since the marinade is not basted during cooking, I usually make some spinach alongside, and dump the marinade in to flavor the greens. Make sure to cook thoroughly, though!
