800 gms Chicken
1 tsp Green chilli paste
1 tsp Garlic paste
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1 tsp Garam masala powder
1/2 Cup Yogurt
2-3 tbsp Lemon juice
Salt (according to taste)


Prick chicken diagonally with knife.

Mix red red chilli powder, salt and lemon juice altogether and apply it over the chicken.

Marinate it for 1 hour.

Add ginger, garlic and green chilli paste to the churned out yogurt. Also add garam masala and mix well.

Pour this yogurt mixture over the chicken and toss, so that it gets coated well all through, with the paste.

Again marinate it for 5-6 hours.

Brush the chicken with little oil. Then put it in a grill and cook for about 20 minutes (almost cooked).

Finally smear the chicken with oil and again roast it until fully cooked. Serve hot with onion rings and green chutney.
