  • Stir the remaining ingredients into the yogurt.
  • Add the yogurt mixture to the chicken and mix well ensuring it coats the pieces thoroughly.
  • Marinate in the fridge for at least for 10 hours.
  • Grill for about 20-25 mins or until cooked, brushing with marinade several times, and finally with oil.
  • During grilling, turn the chicken pieces frequently.
  • Squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle chaat masala over the grilled chicken.
