1 cup plain yogurt 1 teaspoon salt 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom (preferably fresh-ground) 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 3 pounds chicken parts 2 tablespoons flour
Combine yogurt and seasonings. Marinate chicken in yogurt mixture for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).
Remove chicken from marinade (you'll need to scrape most of it off with a spoon) and place in a baking pan, skin-side up. Stir flour into marinade and spoon over chicken.
Bake at 350 degrees F, basting occasionally with marinade, for about 1-1/2 hours or until tender.
The cardamom is kind of expensive, but don't be tempted to leave it out--it makes a wonderful difference! I buy it as whole seeds (not pods, but the little black seeds that are inside them) and grind them with a mortar and pestle as I use them.
