Grilled Chicken-Indian Style

Yesterday,it was wonderful time in dessert workshop..Today,I made grilled chicken ,kebabs,couple of chilled desserts and some cupcakes too...For Blogging marathon,I need to post 3-4 daily combo meal/Thali..Here is one i had today,

As u can see,its a simple combo..Grilled Chicken,Rasam,Mango Icecream and Rice..

Mango Ice-cream was a hit as i have already posted the recipe,it is quit easy and best recipe.You dont have to wait overnight ,no churning steps,just mix,freeze and Enjoy!

I will share the grilled chicken recipe, Obviously i need to do an individual click on it,but the time just flew away and the (grilled)chicken too...Will the chicken fly??..If it is flies,i guess it dont be used to cook in many dishes..So,Thank God for all the mercy :-P

1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garam masala (substitute curry powder if you can't find it)
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (use 1/4 teaspoon for less heat)
3 tablespoons peeled and roughly chopped fresh ginger
7 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
½ cup whole milk Greek yogurt
Zest and juice from one lime (about 1 teaspoon zest and 2 tablespoons juice)
1/4 cup vegetable oil or ghee
2-1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
6 whole chicken legs, about 4 pounds. (If using breasts, remove the skin but leave the bone in, which will help keep the breasts moist)
Lime wedges, for serving
1 (9 ounce) jar mango chutney ,for serving, optional
A few sprigs cilantro, optional for garnishing the platter


Remove the skin from the chicken legs. Using clean, dry hands, separate the skin of the thigh from the meat and pull it towards the tip of the leg. When you reach the tip of the leg, use a paper towel to give you more traction and pull the skin free from the leg. 

Using a sharp knife, trim off any extra fat from the chicken
In a small pan over medium-low heat, combine the paprika, garam masala, cumin, coriander, turmeric and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes, until the spices are fragrant.
Add the spices to a blender or mini food processor, along with the ginger, garlic, Greek yogurt, lime zest and juice, oil and salt; process until smooth.

Using a very sharp knife, make 7 slashes in the legs: 3 in the drumstick, 1 in the joint and 3 in the thigh. 

Place the drumsticks in a large bowl and toss with the marinade, massaging it into ever surface.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 425 °F. 

Line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil (for easy clean-up) and set an oven-proof rack over top. Spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray or grease with vegetable oil.
Arrange the chicken on the rack, leaving a bit of space between the pieces. Spoon any marinade left in the bowl evenly over the drumsticks. 

Pour 1½ cups of hot water into the pan, which will create steam to keep the chicken moist. 

Roast for 45 minutes, turning once midway through, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

Turn on the broiler and broil the chicken about 6 inches from the heat for 3-5 minutes, until lightly charred and crisp all over. 

Serve hot or warm.

Makes 6 servings
I will be blogging every day,So stay Connected  :)
