Who doesn't love a great kebab? There is something about chunks of meat and veg, slathered in spicy marinade, grilled with the perfect char and covered in a soothing yoghurt dressing. I am hungry just thinking back to the day we made these beauties. We had a crowd to feed that day, friends from overseas had come over and it was an unusually gloomy day.
Our plans for a barbeque were shelved and we decided to have a finger food party instead! These grilled chicken skewers were perfect party food. It only takes 10 minutes to prep the ingredients and marinade. We completed the prep ahead of time and once our guests arrived, we grilled the skewers so they could have a fresh, delicious snack!
We have combined the skewers with a cooling yoghurt dip in case you find the spice mix a little hot. Use the dip on top of the skewers they way we served it or set it in a bowl so your guests can help themselves.
The spice mix used in this recipe is the Tikka Spice Blend. This blend has lovely spices like cumin, cardamom, caraway, nutmeg, chilli and sweet paprika.
You can also use this blend in curries. We promise it will be a BIG hit!
