To garnish


  1. Put the chopped onion and garlic into a glass or china bowl, add the ginger and chilli, then the dried spices, yogurt and lemon.
  2. Add salt and pepper and mix together.
  3. Stir in the cubed chicken and chill in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight if preferred.
  4. When ready to serve thread the chicken on to metal skewers or soaked wooden skewers with the onion wedges.
  5. Put on to a lightly oiled grill rack, drizzle with a little extra oil and cook under a preheated grill for 8-10 minutes, or on a barbecue, turning once until the onions are browned and the chicken is cooked through.

  7. Serve with a tomato, red onion and coriander salad and warmed naan breads.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
