Spicy Tangy grilled chicken

Are you in a mood to eat a spicy grilled chicken?...hmm...tangy too...?...Here is my recipe for it....


Chicken breasts/wings/drumsticks-250g
Red chilli powder-1/2 tsp
Paprika powder-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Pepper Powder-3/4tsp
Dhaniya powder-1tsp
Aaam choor-1tsp
Lemon juice-2 tsp
Onion-2(Chopped fine)
Salt-As required
Oil-1 1/2 tbsp

Clean the chicken pieces, make small gashes on it. Marinate the chicken with Red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Keep it for 10 minutes. Grill it partially, occasionally basting it with oil. Now grind together ginger, garlic,dhaniya powder,Pepper powder,aamchoor &paprika powder in lemon juice into a coarse paste. Now marinate the partially grilled chicken with this paste and keep it for another 15 minutes. Now grill it at high for nearly 10 minutes, frequently turning the sides and basting it with oil.Chop the onions, marinate it with 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, turmeric,oil and salt. Grill it at high, stirring occasionally for 3 or 4 minutes.

Now serve the grilled chicken on this bed of grilled onion along with tomato sauce or pudina chutney! Have it as a starter or with chappathi...

Instead of marinating the second time,is it enough I coat the chicken pieces with the paste while it is on the grill?

You could even mix red chilli powder and salt along with the main I did it in two stages so that the marinade really seeped into the pieces... Many a times it so happens that marinade just remains on the surface layer and deep inside the chicken pieces are still bland...I wanted to have a proper spicy chicken!!
