  • to marinate
  • 1kg chicken thighs, boneless and skinless and cut into bite size pieces 

  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder 

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp black pepper powder

  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds, toasted and crushed coarsely 

  • 4 tsp garam masala

  • 1 tbsp garlic, chopped finely or pounded to a paste

  • 1 tbsp ginger, chopped finely or pounded to a paste

  • 2 egg, beaten

  • 4 tbsp greek yogurt 

  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes

  • to garnish
  • coriander leaves, chopped

  • 1 tbsp butter, melted and to baste

Directions

  • Combine the marinade ingredients together with the pieces of chicken. Allow the mixture to marinate for ideally 8-12 hours, but if that’s not possible, then at least 1 hour.
  • Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto metal skewers and lay them vertically over a baking tray. Create a small gap between the skewers and tray surface if possible.
  • Place the chicken skewers in a preheated grill and cook for 30 minutes, turning the kebabs half way through. Remove the kebabs from the grill and baste with melted butter.
  • Serve directly on skewer or unfasten the chicken pieces into a bowl and garnish with chopped coriander and lemon wedges.
