Course Main Meal
Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 4


  • 4 cloves garlic - crushed
  • 1 inch ginger - grated
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp gram masala
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/3 cup chopped coriander
  • 1 cup (250g) natural yogurt
  • 3 small (280g) chicken breasts - cut into chunks


  • Mix the garlic, ginger, spices and yogurt together
  • Stir through the coriander
  • Add the chicken and mix well until the marinade coats the chicken.
  • Allow to marinade for at least 30 mins (I left overnight)
  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for 20 mins before skewering
  • Place in a preheated oven (180C, 350f, Gas 4) until the chicken is cooked through (approx. 15min)


I balanced the kebabs on a dish before cooking (see pic) to catch any marinade and to keep my oven clean!
These kebabs are lovely served with rice, couscous, quinoa, bulgar wheat or made into a delicious nan bread sandwich.
