There are a lot of spices in this chicken dish, but it’s worth the trouble as the flavour is great. Feel free to substitute or omit if you don’t have everything!

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1½ teaspoons dried mango powder (amchoor; optional)
  • 1½ teaspoons crushed dried fenugreek leaves

Place chiles in a medium bowl and pour in hot water to cover. Let sit until chiles are very soft, about 30 minutes; drain. Blend chiles, ginger, garlic, yogurt, cilantro stems, lime juice, mustard oil (if using), coriander, paprika, mango powder (if using), fenugreek leaves, garam masala, cumin, and 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil in a blender until smooth.

Transfer marinade to a large resealable plastic bag. Season chicken generously with salt and add to marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat chicken. Chill at least 2 hours.

Let chicken sit at room temperature 1 hour before grilling.

Prepare a grill for medium heat; oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess drip back into bag, and grill, turning every minute or so, until beginning to char in spots, 8–10 minutes total.

Transfer to a platter and let rest 5–10 minutes before serving.

Do Ahead: Chicken can be marinated 12 hours ahead. Keep chilled.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584215403674{margin-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”custom” border_width=”3″ accent_color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
