Ingredients 250 grams Boneless chicken cut into bite size pieces.
Some oil to drizzle
Marinade 1/2 cup yoghurt
2 teaspoon ginger and garlic paste
1/2 teaspoon carom seeds (if you don't have these, use thyme)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon each of cumin powder, coriander powder
1 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 teaspoon chicken masala OR garam masala
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon dry fenugreek leaves/kasuri methi- find this in Indian stores (optional)
Salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients listed under marinade. Ensure that all powders are mixed throughly.
Add the washed and cleaned chicken pieces to the marinade and coat each piece well. Taste at this point if you need to adjust seasonings
Off to the refrigerator
Refrigerate. Ideally it should be kept overnight. But if you are short of time, 2 hours should be good.
Transfer the chicken pieces to a pan. Drizzle little oil and cook on both sides till the sauces of the marinade are almost dry.
Pierce a skewer through the pieces and roast. I used a wire mesh on the fire and placed the skewers over it. Don't leave it unattended and keep turning so that all the surfaces come in contact with the fire. Take care to not burn it. Alternatively, you may use the oven or grill.
