With a sharp knife, make short slashes in the chicken about ½" deep and 1" apart. Rub the chicken with lemon juice and salt. Place chicken in a shallow dish. In a mini food processor or blender combine the ginger and garlic, adding 1 tbsp of water to make a smooth paste. Add the cumin, red pepper powder, paprika, coriander and cardamom. Add the yogurt and blend to a smooth paste. Do not overprocess. Place the chicken in a shallow dish. Rub the marinade for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 500. Lightly spray the chicken with oil and place on a wire rack in a large, shallow roasting pan.
