( Measurements in Cooking )


Put the chicken cubes in a shallow dish. Mix the lime, ginger, and chili together and pour over the chicken pieces. Stir gently to coat. Cover and let chill for at least 3 hours to marinate.

Thread the chicken pieces onto soaked wooden skewers and cook under a hot broiler for 3-4 minutes, turning often, until cooked through.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or large skillet and sauté the onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes, until softened but not browned. Add the eggplant, zucchini, and bell pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes, until cooked but still firm. Add the curry paste, soy sauce, and sugar, and cook for 1 minute.

Serve the vegetables and kabobs hot with boiled rice, stirred through with chopped cilantro.
