tip: you can make the tandoori spice mix yourself, or use a ready-made spice mix.

Preparation – 10 minutes + waiting time

Peel the garlic cloves and chop them finely. Remove any excess fat and sinew from the turkey and cut it into cubes.

Finishing the tandoori turkey skewers – 10 minutes

Pierce all turkey pieces through the wooden skewers. If using a coal barbecue, heat it well in advance. If using a gas barbecue it is not necessary to preheat it.

Grill the turkey skewers on all sides until they are a nice golden brown. Delicious and served with gobi manchurian and lentil and roasted pepper bread. Enjoy your meal!

Tandoori Turkey Skewers: frequently asked questions

What can I use instead of a barbecue?

You can cook these turkey tandoori skewers on a griddle. Make sure that the extractor fan is switched on, as a lot of smoke is generated when grilling meat.

Can I use chicken instead of turkey?

Yes, you can. Use good quality chicken breast. Turkey and chicken can be prepared in much the same way.
