chicken kebabs

8 chicken breasts or thigh fillets
200g of plain yogurt
½ tsp chili paste
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp cumin
1tsp of grated ginger
2 crushed garlic cloves
Salt and pepper

1.     Cut the chicken into kebab sized pieces.

2.    Mix all the ingredients together, including the chicken and leave in the refrigerator.

3.      thread the chicken on to bamboo skewers .

4.    So why do I mention bamboo skewers at all? Well, some people like to be traditional in their approach to cooking over naked flames, and chook was cooked on sticks long before there was steel.

5.    I’ve taken the time to explain all this because there’s nothing else to do except cook the chicken over your favorite barbie, or under your red-hot grill.
6.    Oh yes, the dip. Take one small cucumber, deseed it, grate it and squeeze out as much water as you can. Stir this into 100g of plain yogurt, add 1tbs chopped mint  60mls of cream and some freshly ground black pepper. Taste and add a little salt if necessary.
