  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.

This recipe was delicious. It was so easy to do yet so tasty. I marinated the chicken all day. Once I had used all the chicken up, I heated the remaining marinade and used it as a dip for the chappatis. I will recommend it and will make it again.

A quick, easy and tasty tea. My 3 y.o. found it a bit spicy, so next time will try it with a milder paste.

This was very tasty and easy to make...the salad was yum too! I only had Balti curry paste so I used that and it worked out just fine. Will definitely make again.
