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.

I've just made this for dinner and it was so easy and so tasty! . I put chilli flakes on the salad and made a yogurt and mint dip. With a side dish of pilau rice. It went down a storm.

I use Pataks Tikka Masala Spice paste, add 1x finely chopped red onion, coconut yoghurt (not the low fat stuff), add a teaspoon of ground cumin, a squirt of lemon juice and let the meat marinate for several hours. Alternate the meat with red onion wedges on skewers, place on a medium hot BBQ and the result is absolutely storming!

Easy to make and very tasty. Not all of the yoghurt is needed, though. Will be using red onion and sweet pepper on the skewers next time. Very nice with the chapatis, although I might make my own next time.

This has become an absolute family favourite. I have recently made my own flatbreads and pakoras to go with it, which went down really well. Love this recipe.
