1. Rub the chicken with turmeric, lemon juice and salt and set aside for 15 minutes.

2. To make the Cafreal paste, grind together all of the ingredients until they form a smooth and thick paste.

3. Apply the spice paste to the chicken and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight.

4. Cook the marinated chicken on a barbecue for about 5 minutes on each side, or until through.

5. Serve while hot with a green salad or rice.
