600 g chicken breasts, diced
45 ml lemon juice
15 ml fresh ginger, grated
2 cloves garlic, crushed
5 ml Robertsons cumin
5 ml Robertsons paprika
3 ml Robertsons crushed chilli
50 ml cream
3 ml garam masala
for the masala sauce:
50 g Stork margarine
1 onion, finely diced
15 ml fresh ginger, grated
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
15 ml Robertsons coriander
5 ml Robertsons Turneric
5 ml chilli powder
5 ml Robertsons paprika
50 ml yoghurt
1 large plum tomato, diced
400 ml boiling water
1 Knorr chicken stock pot
3 ml garam masala
bunch freshly coriander leaves, chopped

Preparation method

Place chicken in a large mixing bowl, and rub in the lemon juice into the chicken with your fingers. Set aside for 15-20 minutes.
Add the ginger, garlic, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, cream and garam masala. Mix well, cover and refrigerate 5-6 hours.
Heat the Stork Margarine in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes or until the onions brown. Add the ginger and garlic, and cook for further 3 minutes. Add the ground coriander, turmeric, chilli powder and paprika and cook on high heat for 10 seconds. Add the yoghurt and mix in well.
Add the tomatoes, water and Knorr Chicken Stock Pot. Bring to the boil, reduce to low heat, cover and let simmer gently for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken. Stir in the garam masala and coriander leaves.
Meanwhile, when the sauce is simmering, thread the chicken cubes onto skewers. Place under a hot grill and cook until nicely browned on each side and cooked through. Remove chicken from skewers then fold into the sauce and serve immediately.
Serve with white fluffy basmati rice. Please note: This recipe requires 6 hours of chill time.
