Why is it our favorite? For one, it's very simple and easy to put together. Two, it's healthy and wholesome. Three, it's colorful and pleasing to the eyes. Four, it comes on a stick which for some reason is a sure fire way to get children to eat them. Five, and the most important, the marinade leaves the chicken cubes juicy and succulent. The aroma and flavors of grated onions, yogurt and saffron work well together and leave you asking for more.
I found that seasoning the vegetables and leaving them aside for a while before threading them on skewers brought out their flavors and took the dish to a different level altogether.
A pinch of saffron threads
A generous pinch of ground turmeric (optional)
