  • 1 Place chicken in a large mixing bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Set aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • 2 Add the ginger, garlic, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, cream and garam masala. Mix well, cover and refrigerate 5-6 hours.
  • 3 Heat the Flora Buttery 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.
  • 4 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.
  • 5 Meanwhile, while 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.
  • 6 Serve with naan bread and some white basmati or pilau rice.
