DIRECTIONS

  • Put the whole peppercorns, cardamom seeds and cumin in a spice mill and grind them into a fine powder. You can also do this with a mortar and pestle.
  • Put the water in a blender along with the salt, ginger, garlic, cayenne, vinegar and ground spices.
  • Blend to a smooth paste.
  • Put the yogurt in a bowl large enough to hold the chicken.
  • Stir in the spice paste.
  • Add the chicken and make sure all pieces are covered in the marinade.
  • Break the cinnamon stick in two and tuck it in with the chicken.
  • Cover and marinate for at least two hours and as much as overnight.
  • Set the oven to 220 C or 425°F.
  • Bake the chicken in a shallow dish for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
  • The yogurt should have formed a dark brown crust.
  • Sprinkle with mint leaves.
