Contrary to many Indian dishes, this comes together quickly. Great on the grill for a change.

Great blend of flavors, and our chicken on the grill was moist (boneless breasts). I served it with mango sauce as an optional topping. I sauteed a batch on the stove top and it was not as good: the chicken "taste" overpowered with the spice blend flavor. I plan to mix the spices here, and give them in gift bottles with instructions to add the last three ingredients to make the "paste."

This was Fantastic! I only had 2 hours for the chicken to marinate. I can't wait to see what this tastes like after all night! I can't wait to serve this to company! We will be making this again and again... Thanks so much for a GREAT recipe!
