Dead easy and very tasty. Also whizzed the mixture in a blender first....used Rorgan Josh curry paste... Yummy!

Really really quick and tasty - pop everything in a blender and whiz - shape around skewers and grill. Needs seasoning though, so a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper really is required in the mix.
