  3. Then take a large bowl and mix together with yogurt, salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, chat masala, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, mustard oil, kasuri methi.

    The density of the marinade should be thick, otherwise it will let out on the grill pan.

    Overnight marination works great. It gives the unique taste to the chicken.
