How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the onion and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a mini food processor. Add the cottage cheese, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, coriander, garam masala, salt and cayenne and process until smooth.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the cottage cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.

Step 3    

Preheat the broiler. Thread the chicken pieces onto 6 long metal skewers. Place the skewers on a large baking sheet and brush generously with the ghee. Broil 3 inches from the heat, turning and basting twice with ghee, until richly browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes.

Step 4    

Transfer the skewers to a platter. Sprinkle generously with chat masala, garnish with the cilantro and serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

The tangy chat masala sprinkled on these skewers toward the end of cooking gives them a zesty quality they wouldn't otherwise possess, a nice match with the citrusy intensity of dry Australian Rieslings. The Clare Valley, north of Adelaide, produces exceptional bottlings.
