2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a small ball combine the lemon juice and lemon zest with the yogurt, cayenne pepper and Garam masala to make a marinade. Pour the marinade over the chicken thighs and turn to coat them. Let the chicken in the marinade at room temperature for 1 hour.

Light a grill. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Lightly brush the chicken with butter and transfer to the grill. Grill over moderate heat for 22 - 25 minutes, turning and brushing occasionally, until chicken is done.
