1  medium (about 800  grams) chicken cleaned and skinned
1  cup(s) yoghurt well beaten
1  teaspoon(s) each of hot spice mix (garam masala), cumin and red chilli powders

    Make cuts on the chicken. Apply a mixture of red chilli powder, half of the lemon juice and salt to the chicken and keep aside for about an hour.
    Whisk the yoghurt in a bowl and combine the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Rub this marinade well into the chicken and refrigerate preferably overnight or at least for four hours.

  1. Skewer the chicken and barbeque it in a hot clay oven (Tandoor) or on an open hot grill for about 12  minutes or till the chicken is almost done.
  2. Baste the chicken with butter and roast for another 3  minutes.

    Garnish with onion rings, lemon wedges and finely chopped coriander leaves.


  • If there is access to a traditional clay oven or a Tandoor, the chicken should be barbequed in it. Alternatively, use an open hot grill.

Serve hot with: Green Chutney (Hari Chutney).
