  • Chicken breast or thigh, skinless and boneless, cut into 2 inch chunks (800g)
  • 75g fresh coriander, blitzed in a food processor
  • 1 tablespoons ginger paste

In a large mixing bowl mix all the masala ingredients except the butter.

Rub the mixture all over the chicken and leave to marinade for a minimum of 2 hours up to 24 hours

Skewer the chicken onto wooden or metal skewers (remember to soak wooden ones in water for a few hours)

Heat your grill to the highest setting and cook for about 20 minutes (or until the juices run clean when pierced with a knife)

Once cooked pour over the melted butter, sprinkle with coriander and serve with naan and a mint chutney or my kebab shop chilli sauce (see recipe)
