Wash the chicken, wipe dry, prick in 2-3 places and mix all the ingredients, except those for garnishing, and let marinate for 2-3 hours.
Just before serving, place on a drip tray and grill till light brown, or bake in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes.
If you can cook it in a tandoor, it is even better. A drip-tray is essential, because the drippings should have a means of escape, other wise the chicken will be soggy.
Serve, garnished with onion rings, pudina and lemon wedges.
