Enjoy the mild, aromatic flavours of India in this quick meal. Tender strips of chicken get a light tandoori coating, which goes perfectly with fragrant garlic rice. A collection of zesty side dishes takes this dinner to the next level: there's a fresh salad, creamy yoghurt sauce and sweet chutney to cover all your bases.

Each week, we search the country to source the best ingredients, with a focus on quality and variety. This week's cherry tomatoes were in short supply, so we've replaced them with gourmet tomatoes. Don't worry, the recipe will be just as delicious!

1

Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water and 1/2 the salt. Bring to the boil then add the basmati rice. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes.

In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, add the tandoori chicken and cook, tossing regularly, until the chicken is browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. TIP: Stand back! The tandoori paste can spatter while the chicken is cooking. TIP: Don’t worry if your chicken gets a little charred during cooking, it adds to the flavour!
