With a fresh tandoori masala spice mix & yoghurt marinade, these goat meat skewers are a perfect dish to brighten up a dark wintry day. Best made from leg meat and simply grilled, they are a great example of the fresh and light deliciousness that you can only get from tasty goat meat.
(serves 2 as a starter)
400g kid goat meat, cut into big, evenly sized cubes
1 tbsp tandoori masala spice mix
3 tbsps plain natural yoghurt
Squeeze of lemon juice
2 wooden skewers, soaked
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the goat meat, tandoori masala and yoghurt. Marinate the goat meat for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator or overnight.
Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
Skewer the goat meat, add a bit of olive oil to preheated oven-proof pan, and grill skewers for 5 minutes or until slightly blackened on both sides.
Pop in preheated oven for 10mins or until both sides are slightly burnt on both sides, and the juices are just starting to leach out.
Squeeze lemon juice over skewers and serve with a dollop of yoghurt, if desired.
*You can also cook these goat meat skewers in a Tandoor oven or on a charcoal barbecue. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.
