Melanie's Chicken Tikka Marinade

Melanie's Chicken Tikka Marinade
This marinade was used by my friend, Melanie, at a recent BBQ dinner party. It was the best tasting grilled chicken I've ever eaten! I believe it would also be a good marinade for vegetables.

Ingredients

Preparation Instructions:

Clean chicken and dry, sprinkle and mix with 1 teaspoon salt and let stand for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, crush the cardamom pods in a mortar using the pestle (remove the shell casings), then add garlic and ginger and pound to a coarse paste. I used a mini chopper, which worked fine. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and stir in the yogurt, lemon juice, black pepper, cayenne. Pour the marinade over the chicken in the bowl or a zip lock bag and turn the pieces to coat. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for 6-12 hours; the longer the better. Grill on high until done.
