i gotta say.. Chicken tandoori or tikka style is my favourite way of eating chicken.. I love the taste .. Simply delightful.. A wonderful invention and thanks to the wonderful ready mixed spice you can get that are excellent it is a joy indeed..
I got one spring chicken.. ( baby) and its skinned , chopped and slashed up, and also some boneless legs.. A great idea this middle eastern butcher has.. Selling boned out legs.. Sure they still have some googly bits .. Yet it’s fun to play with your food right? ( and the hounds are happy to get their share of the bits I chop out). Once chopped it’s into the bowl with powdered garlic, the spice mix, natural yoghurt and Mrs middletons pimped garlic oil..
Mixed up and left to marinate for a few hours ..
Then straight onto the oven bars..
Cooked at 180 real money degrees. For about 40 minutes..
And you get this!
And also why not a little veg side?
Pink onions fried off in Mrs middletons. Pimped garlic oil. And French butter.. Chopped ginger.. And a half can of tinned potatoes.. Yeah you read that right.. Tinned potatoes ..
Then adding half a can of sarson ka saag.. Another great store cupboard staple..
And that’s that!
Delicious and cooked in like less than ten minutes..
A quick raita of yoghurt , purple Patagonian garlic, lemon juice and Maldon salt..
Oh and parathas.. That will be the next post..
And of course there are great leftovers to be had 👏😉
