Method

Arrange chicken in a wide, shallow dish. Put 3/4 cup of the yogurt, ginger, paprika, 1 teaspoon of the salt, garlic powder, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, cayenne, bay leaves, garlic, onion and 1/4 cup water into a blender, and purée until smooth. Pour over chicken, tossing to coat. Cover and chill for at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Arrange chicken on the grill (discarding marinade that doesn’t cling to the pieces) and cook, turning occasionally, until somewhat charred and just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a platter and roughly shred with a fork. 

Meanwhile, mix remaining 1/2 cup yogurt with cumin, cucumber and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to make raita. Top naan with chicken, raita, cilantro and chile sauce.
