There are many ways to prepare the South Asian dish called chicken lajawab (lajawab often is translated from Urdu as “priceless” or “peerless”). Our rendition, a riff on a recipe from “Madhur Jaffrey’s Step-by-Step Cooking,” employs a high-impact seasoning paste two ways: it’s rubbed onto chicken parts that are cooked in a hot oven, and it’s combined with yogurt to serve as an accompaniment. Depending on their capsaicin content, the jalapeños may add a decent amount of chili heat; if you wish to temper their spiciness, remove the seeds and ribs before dropping the chilies into the blender. Basmati rice or warmed naan are excellent alongside.
medium shallots, peeled and halved
inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 4 or 5 pieces
01Heat the oven to 475°F with a rack in the middle position. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. In a blender, combine the shallots, ginger, jalapeños, cumin, garam masala, vinegar, oil, honey, the cilantro stems, 1 tablespoon salt and 2 teaspoons pepper. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds, scraping the blender jar as needed.
