1/2 tsp Ground Tumeric
2 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Clean your chicken, and cut it into cubes for threading on skewers.
Take a fork and prick the chicken many times.
Put lemon juice in bowl with chicken, stir well, and set it aside.
In a large bowl, mix yogurt, garlic, ginger, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Place the chicken in the bowl with the marinade, and marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably 4-6 hours.
Thread chicken onto skewers.
Heat your grill and place chicken skewers on the grill. If you have a Tandoor, get it going and get it hot.
Brush with butter or olive oil, and grill approximately 6 minutes on each side, or until done, having nice grill/char markiings.
Once you have grilled one side for 6 minutes, turn them over and brush with butter or olive oil, and grill 6 more minutes or until done.
