Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 kilograms chicken pieces, skinned
    Marinade ingredients:
    2 cups natural yogurt
    4 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 inch of ginger, peeled and grated
    juice of 2 lemons
    2 tsp salt
    2 tsp curry powder
    2 tsp cumin
    2 tsp turmeric
    2 tsp paprika
    1 tsp hot pepper flakes
    2 lemons for wedges when serving

Directions

Skin the chicken pieces and cut deep slits in the flesh to allow the marinade to penetrate. Put the chicken in a plastic container, preferably long and shallow, with a snap on lid.
Mix the marinade and pour over the chicken pieces, rubbing it in well. Refrigerate for 1 or 2 days, turning the pieces when you remember.
Take out of the fridge two hours before grilling as the chicken will not cook through without burning if it is cold in the middle.
Shake off the marinade, and grill slowly over indirect heat until cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges.

Number of Servings: 8
