  • Summary

    Garam masala is a spice mixture that's commonly used in Indian cuisine. If you can't find it in your supermarket, substitute 1 teaspoon ground cumin. Greek yogurt is a great base for a marinade -- it tenderizes the meat while adding plenty of flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large white onion, 1/2 chopped, 1/2 thinly sliced
    • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
    • 1 cup Greek yogurt (full-fat)
    • 1 teaspoon garam masala
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 8 skinless chicken drumsticks
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for grates
    • 1 cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and sliced crosswise
    • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
    • Naan or pita, for serving (optional)
