How to Make Murgh-E-KalmiHideShow Media
Wash the chicken and wipe dry. Prick in 2-3 places.
Mix all the ingredients, except those for garnishing.
Marinate the chicken for 2-3 hours in the mixture.
Before serving, place the marinated chicken on a drip-tray and grill till light brown, or bake in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes.
It is best cooked in a tandoor. A drip-tray is essential, because the drippings need to escape. Chicken cooked in drippings becomes soggy.
Serve hot, garnished with onion rings, chopped mint leaves and lemon wedges.
