For a rabbit snack that’s more Bombay Central Station than Grand Centrale Roma, Jamie suggests smothering the meat in a classic tikka marinade. Again, this makes enough for one rabbit (or chicken), jointed.


Mix together 6 tablespoons of yoghurt, the juice of a lemon, a 2.5cm/1 inch cube of fresh ginger, grated, 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and grated, a teaspoon each of ground cumin and salt, and ¼ teaspoon each of garam masala, turmeric and cayenne pepper. Slather the mixture over your rabbit pieces and marinate for an hour or longer — leave overnight for a more potent mix!

Thread it on to wooden skewers (remembering to soak them in water beforehand) and barbecue till crisp and tender. Serve on a bed of rice.
