Yogurt (curd) - 1/2 cup
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp.
Salt to taste

  1. Thoroughly clean the chicken. Prick it with knife or fork all over and make slits diagonally.
  2. Apply a mixture of red chilli powder, salt and lemon juice all over the body and marinate it for 30-45 minutes.
  3. Churn the yogurt and add ginger, garlic and green chilli paste, garam masala and mix well.
