1. Put the chicken in a large bowl. Mix together the marinade ingredients and pour them over the chicken. Stir well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Grind together the chillies, ginger and garlic in a food processor, or using a pestle and mortar. Chop the tomatoes coarsely and blend them into the chilli mixture.

3. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and fry the tomato mixture for about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it sticking, Add the lemon juice and a spoonful of water, if the sauce becomes too thick.

4. Stir in the sugar and seasoning to taste.

5. Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto thin wooden skewers.

6. Cook the chicken under a preheated grill, turning frequently, until golden brown, about 5 - 8 minutes. Brush the chicken with the remaining marinade during cooking.
