In a dry pan, toast spices gently until they start to smoke, then grind to a powder. Mix spices, garlic, ginger, salt, saffron and chutney in a glass bowl. Then mix in yoghurt, add chicken and stir, making sure each piece is covered in marinade, cover and put in fridge.

Leave for about two hours then thread on to four skewers - with peppers and onions, if you like. Grill or barbecue until cooked through. Scatter with coriander, and serve with naan bread, wedges of lemon, and a cucumber and mint salad.
