Try with a side order of 'Confused Indian Potatoes' - recipe here.

Ingredients:

  • Boneless chicken, cut into cubes
  • Nepalese Sekuwa Spice Blend
  • Honey or golden syrup (optional), for brushing

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Chicken: Pat the chicken cubes dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Marinate the Chicken: Coat the chicken cubes generously with the Nepalese Sekuwa Spice Blend. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight for the flavours to penetrate deeply.
  3. Prepare the Skewers: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning. Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the skewers.
  4. Prepare the BBQ: Preheat your BBQ to a medium-high heat, around 200°C to 230°C.
  5. Grill the Skewers: Place the chicken skewers on the grill. Grill for about 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is charred at the edges and cooked through.
  6. Optional Glaze: In the last few minutes of grilling, brush the chicken skewers with a thin layer of honey or golden syrup. Watch closely and turn frequently to prevent the glaze from burning.
  7. Check for Doneness: Ensure the chicken is cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 74°C when checked with a meat thermometer.
  8. Rest and Serve: Let the skewers rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.
