  • 3-4 tbsps garam masala
  • 6 peppercorns/ 2 dry red chillies

  • Marinate the chicken pieces in this yogurt masala mix for at least two hours in refrigerator. Overnight or through the day marination is preferable.
  • Divide chicken among skewers leaving 1 cm space between cubes. Arrange skewers suspended across a grill. Grill chicken about 4 inches from heat, turning regularly, until browned in spots and just cooked through (9 to 12 minutes). Baste with oil at intervals to retain the juiciness of the chicken.
