Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Season entire hen
with salt, including the cavity. Push the wings back and rub the garam masala
over the entire hen. Place on a lightly oiled baking rack set over a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Brush with some of the glaze and reduce the heat to 375 degrees F and continue baking until just cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the leg registers 160 degrees F. Remove from the oven, brush with the remaining glaze
, and let rest 5 minutes before serving. Alternatively, you can sear
the hens in an oven-safe saute pan over medium-high heat and then transfer pan to the oven to finish cooking.
