  • Combine the marinade ingredients and mix well: yogurt, garlic, cumin, garam masala, coriander, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Pour mixture over the chicken in a resealable plastic bag, and rub marinade into the meat. Marinate for at least one hour, and up to 24 hours.
  • When ready to prepare the salads: Place chicken on grill, discarding any extra marinade. Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes per side, turning once, until chicken is done. Meanwhile, skewer tomatoes or place in a grill basket and cook until slightly charred, about 5 minutes, stirring or turning periodically.
  • Allow chicken and tomatoes to cool.
  • Meanwhile, combine dressing ingredients and mix well: the remaining plain yogurt, cumin, garam masala, salt, cilantro, white wine vinegar, olive oil, and cayenne pepper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the romaine lettuce, cucumber, and chickpeas.
  • Chop chicken when cool enough to handle, and add chopped chicken and tomatoes to the salad.
  • Toss with dressing until all ingredients are mixed well.
