6 to 8 -


  • Basmati Rice or Govindobhog Rice

  • 2 pounds boneless chicken legs or breasts, well trimmed

  • 1 cup plain yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1/8 teaspoon saffron threads, crushed and dissolved in 2 tablespoons water (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon crushed dried mint

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 24 hours.

  2. Light a charcoal grill or preheat the broiler. Loosely thread the chicken on metal skewers. Grill or broil the chicken 5 to 6 inches from the heat for about 10 minutes, turning the skewers as necessary for even cooking. Serve hot or at room temperature, with Chelo or plain rice.
