About this recipe: This is my adaptation of tandoori chicken. Marinate the chicken overnight for a deliciously flavourful and tender chicken dish.


Serves: 6 

  • 1.5kg bone-in chicken pieces
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 500ml (2 cups) natural yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1½ tablespoons ground coriander
  • handful chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

  1. Score the chicken parts to help absorb more flavour. Mix together the lemon juice and salt; rub into the chicken meat and place pieces into a shallow dish.
  2. Place ½ of the yoghurt and the cumin, ground coriander, fresh coriander, paprika, turmeric, salt, pepper and garlic into a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in remaining yoghurt. Pour over the chicken pieces, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  4. Preheat barbecue for medium heat.
  5. Remove chicken from the marinade; discard any remaining marinade. Barbecue the chicken for 30 to 45 minutes, turning frequently to prevent burning, until juices run clear. Smaller pieces will finish cooking first.
