In a medium bowl combine all the ingredients for the raita and mix together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and refrigerate until need.

Preheat grill to 400 F.

In a large bowl combine kofta ingredients -  chicken, parsley, onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt and pepper.  Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before molding.

Wet your hands, then mold about ¼ cup of chicken mixture into an oval shape.  Lay out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Making sure your grill grates are well oiled, gently place chicken on the grill.  Cook for approx. 5 minutes then flip.  Continue to cook until internal temperature reaches 165F on a meat thermometer.
