Yield: 4 servings


Preparation Instructions:

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces; place in large bowl. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and lemon juice. Marinate, covered, for 30 minutes.
Combine tomato puree, garlic, ginger root, coriander, allspice, nutmeg, turmeric, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, yogurt and oil in food processor container. Process until smooth. Mix with chicken.
Marinate, covered in refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.
Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Thread chicken pieces 1/4 inch apart onto skewers. Place in foil-lined baking pan. Coat with part of the reserved marinade.

Serve on or off skewers.

Helpful Hints

Make sure any marinade you use gets thoroughly cooked, because it contains juices (bacteria) from the raw chicken.

This recipe calls for Garam Masala, but no where indicates when or how to use in recipe.

The combination of lemon and yogurt makes for a very tangy dish. I thought it was just okay, but my partner went for seconds.
