Beef skewers

Position oven rack in top third of oven. Preheat the oven’s broiler. In a medium sized bowl, mix together masala paste and yogurt. Add beef to spice mixture and stir until evenly coated. Can keep refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 24 hours if not cooking immediately. Tightly thread 1 strip of beef onto each skewer and place on a foil-lined 21 x 15 inch baking sheet. If strips are small, thread 2 or 3 strips onto a skewer. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes. Keep the oven light on and check often to make sure beef does not burn.

Use naan bread to pull the beef off of the skewers. Garnish your wrap with cucumber, red onion, lettuce, tomato, cilantro and Raita sauce.
