½ teaspoon paprika

Curry Yoghurt Sauce:

​3 tablespoons Greek Style Unsweetened Yoghurt
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ teaspoon curry powder
¼ cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped


  1. Soak wooden skewers in cold water (this helps to prevent burning).
  2. In a bowl whisk together the yoghurt, ginger, spices and salt. Add the lime or lemon zest.
  3. Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.
  4. Now mix the curry yoghurt sauce. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  5. Heat a chargrill pan or your barbecue plate until medium-hot.
  6. Thread the chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers. Place on the hot grill and grill for about 3 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through. Place on a serving plate and drizzle over the lime or lemon juice.
  7. Serve with the curry yoghurt sauce, steamed rice and naan bread. Extra limes are good too.
