Chicken tikka starter with mint sauce- Simple and good
« on: April 13, 2014, 11:54 PM »
Ingredients
Marinade....
1 Large chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
1 3/4 tsp Tandoori masala powder
3/4 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Garlic ginger paste
1/8 tsp Salt (Maldon is best)
1/4 tsp Red colouring powder (optional)
1/2 tsp Veg oil
1 tsp Ghee (maybe try with just butter?)
1 tsp Lemon juice (had good results with lime)
3 Tbsp Yogurt

Method.....

Melt ghee in the microwave and mix the remaining ingredients together then add the chicken
leave at least 1 hour (longer the better, all day ideal)

Arrange on a baking tray (with sides) covered with foil and cook at 180c for 30 mins
Remove foil and char up a little, maybe about 20 mins more + turning occasionally.

For the dip
2 1/2 Tbsp yogurt
1 tsp mint sauce
1/4 tsp Paprika
pinch of salt (Maldon)
1/4 tsp lemon or lime juice
1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp of water... thin down to suit (this is the key to a good sauce)

Hope you like this recipe and I would appreciate any feedback/ideas good or bad.
Please note the dish has a fairly salty bite to it, so reduce salt if its not for you.
Enjoy.

Hi spadge - I tend to grill mine (on foil) on the hottest setting as it chars nicely and only needs turned once.

Me too, and only takes about 15'.
