Now, we all know that I am very partial to a full sumptuous Indian feast.
I make my own paneer from scratch for goodness sake.
Then there was the seven hour lamb rogan josh which I find myself still daydreaming about in quite moments of food related reflection.
And the most awesomely not like anything you will ever get at a shopping mall bain marie Indian outlet butter chicken.
Not to mention my most delicately delicious fish curry and other sundry condiments and side dishes.
But when I say Tandoori chicken for dinner, well, it involves a jar of Pataks Tandoori paste. Sorry ’bout that.
I mix a ratio of paste to yoghurt to taste (Oscar can’t tolerate anything more spicy than pepper) and marinate chicken thigh pieces for a few hours.
Then I make a tzatziki of yoghurt and cucumber and mint, seasoned with some sea salt to serve with it.
I reheat store-bought naan bread and cook up a batch of rice.
And that’s the weeknight Tandoori Chicken dinner in this house…
