In a food processor, grind the coriander, ginger, garlic paste, garam masala, peppercorns, dried chillies into a smooth paste

Pour the paste into a large bowl, adding the yoghurt and stir together. Add the turkey and coat. Cover the bowl with cling-film and refrigerate overnight to marinate

When ready to cook, set your oven to 200 °C/gas mark 6. Thread the turkey pieces onto skewers

Place the skewers on the grill rack in your oven with a tray underneath to catch any drips. Cook the turkey until browned on all sides and tender

Slice your onion into very thin rings, then squeeze lime juice over the rings and sprinkle with chaat masala. Mix well until the rings are totally coated and serve with your turkey
