  • 1/2 cup hung yogurt
  • Salt to taste

  2. Roast cinnamon, cloves, coriander seeds, cardamom and let it cool. Grind the cooled spices into a fine powder.
  3. Roast the onions with skin in an oven for 30 – 40 minutes.
  4. In case the oven is not available, you can roast the onions on the gas flame at a low flame for 10-15 minutes.

  6. In a grinder add the peeled roasted onions, paste of kaju and badam, ginger garlic paste, crushed black peppercorns, hung yogurt, salt, kala namak and crushed masala and mix well. The marinade is now ready.
  7. Slice boneless chicken into thin pieces. Skew them in the bamboo skewers.
  8. Keep the chicken pieces in a bowl, add the prepared marinade mixture and leave for 30 minutes.
  9. To a preheated oven at 250 degrees centigrade, add the chicken skewers and bake it 200 degrees for 20- 25 minutes.
  10. Brush with ghee when nearly done. Bake again for 5-7 minutes. In case oven is not available, add ghee to the non-stick pan and add the marinaded chicken pieces. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
  11. Turn around the chicken pieces and cook from the other side too.
