Ballpark ganked from Ritz:

Add several teaspoons of chili powder to 2 limes worth of fresh-squeezed juice, so that the result is a thin mix. Rub mix on 20 chicken legs that have been de-skinned and scored. Let sit ~5 mins.

Mix together:
* 1 tub plain yogurt
* 1 head garlic
* Several teaspoons chili powder, to taste
* Several teaspoons cumin/coriander, to taste
* Several teaspoons tumeric, to taste
* Several teaspoons of garam masala, other curry powders, to taste
* Fresh-squeezed juice from 1.5 limes

Make sure that there is enough spice to make yogurt smell like spices, not yogurt. Don't add water to the mixture. Combine in a blender until well mixed. Pour marinade over chicken, and let sit for 12+ hours.

Cook in oven at 425F for ~45 minutes. Serve with garam masala, lime juice to taste, and sauteed onions.

Note: lemon juice can be substituted in for lime juice if preferred.

1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix butter, Nutella, sugars, and egg thoroughly.  Add dry ingredients to mixture.  Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Dollop dough onto cookie sheet in small plops.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
