1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3 teaspoons ground coriander

3 teaspoons ground cumin

1/3 cup (90g) natural yoghurt


1. Cut the chicken into 3cm cubes. Soak 30 wooden skewers in cold water for several hours.

3. Thread 4 pieces of chicken onto each skewer and place in a large baking dish. Coat the chicken with the spice mixture. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.

4. Barbecue, fry or grill the chicken skewers, turning frequently, until cooked through.
