Quail Kebabs

Cook Time6 mins
Total Time2 d 6 mins


  • 4 quail quartered, deboned, and cut into large chunks
  • 4 tablespoons finely diced green chiles
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chile powder
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup coconut milk


  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 2 days in the refrigerator.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them for 30 minutes first. Then skewer the chunks of meat onto four wooden or metal skewers and barbecue for about 6 minutes, rotating and basting with the marinade once (discard any remaining marinade). Alternatively, you can broil the skewers in the oven, though be careful not to overcook them or they will become dry.
