  • Summary

    Indian cuisine celebrates chicken in remarkable ways, and this dish was inspired by classic tandoori cooking. Rich flavors result from rubbing the bird with a fragrant paste of spices, onion, and yogurt (which acts as a tenderizer) and letting it infuse the meat. The cucumber, lime, and chiles provide sharp, bright contrast to the seductively scented roast.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons whole cumin seeds
    • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
    • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
    • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 whole chicken (about 4 1/2 pounds)
    • Cucumbers, lime wedges , and chiles (such as serrano)
