  1. Mix yoghurt, oil, ginger/garlic paste, half the lemon juice, and spices together. Smear this mixture over the chicken halves and allow to marinate for a few hours.
  2. Grill chicken over live coals or rotisserie until browned. Alternatively, lightly pan-fry and cook them.
  3. Combine butter, tomato purée, and the remaining lemon juice. Mix in the leftover marinade from the chicken. Bring this mixture to a boil and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the cream.
  4. Place the chicken on a platter, and spread the sauce over top. Garnish with mint sprigs, and serve hot.
