We had this when visiting Hasans in California. We ate so much this time, Rudaba aunty made so many things. I would categorize this as a bachelor recipe(easy to make, fast, simple, delicious).
garlic paste, (use fresh garlic and ginger for best flavor)
black pepper powder,
yoghurt 2-3 tbsp,
garam masala (optional)
oil for baking
lemon juice at the end
Marinate the chicken pieces in the above ingredients except oil and lemon juice. Cut deep slits in the chicken pieces, and using your fingers, press the marinade inside the pieces. Doing this results in flavor throughout the chicken.
Marinate for 12-24 hours. Before baking, drizzle oil over it. Bake (leave a foil over the chicken for sometime, then remove it) then at the end broil.
Before serving drizzle lemon juice on it. Serve with peas pilaf (or any kind of pilaf) and salad.
