8 cloves garlic, minced

10cm ginger, peeled and finely grated

2 tbsp tomato puree

250g The Collective Diary Straight Up yoghurt

  1. In a bowl mix together the yoghurt, garlic, ginger, tomato puree, garam masala, turmeric, ground cumin and chilli powder. Stir in the diced chicken until it is evenly coated with the yoghurt mix. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 4-6 hours.
  2. While the chicken is marinating make the cucumber and mint riata. Mix together all of the ingredients, cover the bowl with cling film and leave to chill until the chicken is cooked.
  3. When the chicken is readypre heat the grill as high as it will go. Thread 4/5 pieces of chicken on to the lightly oiled skewer.
  4. Place the chicken under the grill to cook for 5-10 minutes until starting to colour. Turn and cook on the other side until completely cooked through.
  5. Serve wrapped up in a chapatti with lime pickle, shredded lettuce and sliced cherry tomatoes.
