Chicken Tikka with spiced Rice

skinless chicken breast

150g pot low-fat natural yogurt

50g tikka paste

100g/4oz cucumber, diced

1 tbsp roughly chopped mint leaves

1 red onion, cut into thin wedges

140g easy-cook long grain rice

1 tbsp medium curry powder

50g frozen pea

1 small red pepper, diced


Slash each chicken breast deeply with a knife 3-4 times on one side. Put in a bowl and add
50g of the yogurt and the tikka paste. Mix well, cover and marinate in the fridge for 30 mins. Make
the raita by stirring the cucumber and most of the mint into the rest of the yogurt. Season with black
pepper, cover and chill.

Heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 9. Scatter the onion wedges over a foil-lined baking tray.
Remove the chicken from the marinade, shake off any excess and place on top of the onion wedges.
Cook for 20 mins.

Meanwhile, tip the rice, curry powder, peas and pepper into a pan of boiling water and
simmer for 10 mins or until the rice is just tender. Drain well and divide the rice between 4 plates.

Chicken balti

450g skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 tbsp. lime juice

1 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp hot chili powder

1 1/2 tbsp sunflower or groundnut oil

1 cinnamon stick

3 cardamom pod, split

1 small to medium green chili

1/2 tsp cumin seed

1 medium onion coarsely grated

2 garlic clove very finely chopped

2 1/2 cm-piece ginger grated

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp garam masala

250ml organic passata

1 red pepper, deseeded, cut into small chunks

1 medium tomato chopped


Put the chicken in a medium bowl. Mix in the lime juice, paprika, chili powder and a grinding
of black pepper (step 1), then leave to marinate for at least 15 mins, preferably a bit longer.

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick wok or saute pan. Tip in the cinnamon stick,
cardamom pods, whole chili and cumin seeds, and stir-fry briefly just to colour and release their
fragrance (step 2). Stir in the onion, garlic and ginger and fry over a medium-high heat for 3-4 mins
until the onion starts to turn brown. Add the remaining oil, then drop in the chicken and stir-fry for 2-3
mins or until it no longer looks raw. Mix the turmeric, cumin, ground coriander and garam masala
together. Tip into the pan, lower the heat to medium and cook for 2 mins (step 3). Pour in the passata
and 150ml water, then drop in the chunks of pepper. When starting to bubble, lower the heat and
simmer for 15-20 mins or until the chicken is tender.

Stir in the tomato, simmer for 2-3 mins, then add the spinach and turn it over in the pan to
just wilt. Season with a little salt. If you want to thin down the sauce, splash in a little more water.
Remove the cinnamon stick, chili and cardamom pods, if you wish, before serving. Scatter with fresh
coriander and serve with warm chapattis or basmati rice, if you like.
