Spicy potatoes = yummy. Even better have it with some Tandorri chicken and I am in complete food heaven. There is a horrible downside to having a husband that hates Indian food = I hardly ever get any!
I look forward to the summer fair in June that comes to Portugal. For one main reason……the guy from the other side of Portugal is there serving his Indian cuisine.
I love it!
Lots of side dishes and lots of fattening foods that I seriously shouldn’t be eating. And I always say to myself “its only once a year live a little” so I do and then I forget about it for a while, but I am now learning how to make it myself (even if it is for one) and to enjoy it in a healthier way!
What I have for you here, is a lovely selection of spicy potatoes and some chicken tikka. It makes a fantastic dish and will have you wanting more….and then some more.
- One Calorie Cooking Spray
- 800g Potatoes (cut into quarters)
- 4 Chicken Breasts (cubed)
- 50g Natural Yoghurt
- 2 Garlic Cloves (peeled and chopped)
- 1Tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 2Tbsp Garam Masala
- 1Tbsp Freshly Grated Ginger
- 1Tsp Turmeric
- Pre-heat your oven to 180c.
- Spray a wok (I prefer a wok to a frying pan for cooking with) with one calorie cooking spray. Then add the cayenne pepper, stirring for about 30 seconds. Allow pan to cool.
- Stir in the natural yoghurt and add the ginger and garlic. Stir in the chicken and marinate for 10 minutes.
- Spray a baking tray with one calorie cooking spray.
- Put the potatoes on the tray and spray with the cooking spray (so that the spray is on the tray and on the potatoes) before sprinkling with the turmeric and seasoning well with salt and black pepper.
- Place on the top shelf of the oven and cook for 10 minutes before putting the chicken on another sprayed tray and baking for a further 20-25 minutes. Turn the chicken halfway through to make sure that both sides are getting cooked thoroughly.
- A few minutes before the end of cooking sprinkle the garam masala over the potatoes.
- Place the chicken under a moderate preheated grill for about 5 minutes to finish off.
