An Indian-inspired paste made from an assortment of spices is the secret to this spicy barbecued chicken recipe. No long marinating time is required; the chicken can marinate in the time it takes to get the charcoals hot.

These chicken skewers are always the belle of the barbecue. They are well-spiced, tender and truly delicious. Serve them as a starter, main course or side dish. They're also perfect with naan bread and raita.

Tandoori chicken is a lovely Indian chicken recipe which is characterised by the red colouring of the marinade and the creamy yet tangy flavouring of the yogurt. Although I got this recipe from my mum, I would like to credit Madhur Jaffrey (TV cook) with some of these tips as I watched her make this on a show once. Tandoori chicken is best prepared the night before to give the marinade the fullest chance of flavouring the meat prior to cooking.

Moist, luscious and delicious. Just the right blend of spices make this tandoori chicken one of my most requested. Great hot or cold. If using thighs with skin, you can put over direct medium heat for the last few minutes to crisp skin.

Delicious, succulent tandoori chicken. Cook on the BBQ or even better, if you have a clay oven, use that for a truly authentic taste.
