Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Pre-heat the grill to a high heat

Add the basmati rice, a pinch of salt and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, drain the rice under running cold water until cool

2 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Meanwhile, slice the chicken into strips 

Combine the curry powder, half of the natural yoghurt (keep the other half for later!), 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil and a very generous pinch of salt in a bowl

Add the chicken strips and give everything a good mix up 

3 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Drizzle a baking tray with vegetable oil (to prevent the chicken from sticking)

Add the chicken strips to the tray and put it under grill for 8-12 min or until the chicken's cooked through and starting to char – this is your tandoori chicken

4 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Meanwhile, add the remaining yoghurt and mayo to a small bowl

Zest the lime[s] 

Peel and finely grate (or crush) the garlic

Add the chopped garlic (Don't like raw garlic? Go easy!), lime zest and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper to the yoghurt – this is your lime & garlic yoghurt

5 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Slice the cucumber in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds using a teaspoon 

Slice the cucumber halves finely

Top and tail the radishes, then slice them as finely as you can

6 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Pick the coriander and mint leaves from their stems, discard the stems

Chop the mint and coriander leaves roughly

7 Aromatic Tandoori Chicken & Rice Salad

Add the drained rice, chopped cucumber, sliced radish and nigella seeds to a large bowl 

Squeeze the lime[s] into the bowl and season with salt and a drizzle of olive oil 

Mix well – this is your rice salad
