Method

Step 1

Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

For the vegetables: Place a large pot of water on a high heat and add some salt and the potatoes. Boil for 20 minutes until soft. Drain and cut the potatoes in half. Put the dry pot back on a medium – high heat and add a generous knob of butter. Sauté the potatoes, courgettes and leeks until golden. Season to taste.

Step 3

Tandoori chicken: Place a pan on a medium to high heat. Fry the onion in a little olive oil and a pinch of salt until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the tandoori spices, garlic, ginger and chilli (optional) in a large bowl with enough olive oil to make a paste and add the chicken and mix all together to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the onion and sauté for 5-7 minutes. Stir in the yoghurt and cook for another minute until the chicken is cooked through and the yoghurt sauce is hot. Season to taste and mix in lemon juice.

Step 4

Serve the roast potato, leek and courgette mix with the spiced yogurt chicken and top with some freshly chopped coriander.
