These kebabs are served in every restaurant in the Middle East. You can easily make them at home and they taste just as good, if not better. Don't substitute sour cream for the yoghurt, as the yoghurt is a meat tenderizer.

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) plain yoghurt

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, vegetable oil, plain yoghurt, garlic, tomato paste, salt, oregano, pepper, allspice, cinnamon and cardamom in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Transfer to the chicken to the refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
