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.

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.
