  2. In a blender add the plain yoghurt, half the garlic, half the ginger, 1 tbsp of Garam Masala and 1 tbsp of paprika. Blend so all ingredient are mixed well.

  3. Add the onions and peppers to the spice covered chicken then pour the yoghurt mixture over making sure everything is coated. Leave this to marinate for at least 6 hours.
