“From CookingLight and posted for safekeeping. Timing does not include marinating overnight. Appropriate for Eid celebration. "Eid celebrations include an abundance of dishes full of heady aromas and sweet spices. The yogurt mixture keeps the chicken moist, but it curdles and should be discarded after cooking. Serve the chicken with a basmati rice pilaf tossed with almonds, raisins, and cumin seeds."”
