Method

  1. Put 8 wooden skewers in a bowl of water to soak. Mix the yogurt and curry paste together in a bowl, then add the chicken (if you have time, marinate for an hr or so). In a large bowl, toss together the cucumber, red onion, coriander and lemon juice. Chill until ready to serve.

  2. Shake off any excess marinade, then thread the chicken pieces and cherry tomatoes onto the pre-soaked skewers. Cook under a medium grill for 15-20 mins, turning from time to time, until cooked through and nicely browned.

  3. Stir the lettuce or pea shoots into the salad, then divide between 4 plates. Top each serving with 2 chicken tikka skewers and serve with the warm chapatis.

Made these for a casual dinner party last night, also made the lamb, coconut and mango pilau on this site, went down really well with my guests, they even took some home in a doggy bag, the kebabs tasted much better than shop bought ones, will definitely be making these again, they'd be great on a BBQ too.

Looking at making these in advanced to take away camping, do you think they will freeze ok (minus the tomatoes).

Delicious and so easy. I made a yoghurt and cucumber raita and served with mango chutney - YUM!

Made this for tea for the 4 of us few weeks ago and went down a storm although a little tricky to grill I found. Then last night did a bbq dinner party and served these up for starters - they were a big hit and I was asked for the receipe by everyone - even the cuecumber salad got rave reviews - no one could believe how simple it was to make!

Used the 'Making your own curry paste' from the Chicken tikka masala recipe on this site. Flavour was fantastic & the chicken very tender. Definately my new bbq favourite!

I made this for a bbq, it went down a treat! i had enough time to marinade in fride for a couple of hours before putting onto skewers and cooking, which made the chicken meltingly tender! will be making again.

Tried this last night, although used 1/2 fat creme fraiche instead of the yoghurt, as that was what I had in the fridge. Was lovely!!

Re the CHICKEN TIKKA KEBABS, could I use the left over marinade (yoghurt and curry) as a side sauce after having heated it thoroughly?
