The tandoori chicken salad is paired with red onion pickle, a tomato chutney and mango. You have to try this combination. Even if you are not a fan of tandoori chicken (like the hubby), when you have it with the pickled red onion, the sweet mango and the tomato chutney it.is.divine.
I ALWAYS make red onion pickle and a mango chutney when i make tandoori chicken and i think you will too once you try the combo. In this salad, i have just used raw mango and made a tomato chutney instead and it works so well!
Tandoori Chicken Salad
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 1 lb skinless chicken breast washed
- 3 tbsp tandoori masala powder
- 2 tbsp plain yoghurt
- 1 tsp chilli flakes
- 1 tbsp oil
Pickled red onions
- 1/2 red onion sliced very finely
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- 1 green chilli sliced finely
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- Pinch of turmeric
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- 200 g baby plum tomatoes.
- 1 mango stoned and sliced into wedges
Marinade the chicken in all the ingredients listed.
Add the oil to a non stick pan and add the chicken.
Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes.
Flip the chicken over and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes and cut into strips.
In a small non stick pan over a medium heat, add mustard seed and once they begin to pop add the garlic and green chilli.
Allow to cook for for 1 minute and add the remaining ingredients.
Turn the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for about ten minutes or until the tomatoes have broken down completely and the sauce is thick. Check midway to ensure they aren't catching.
In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the pickled onion and set aside.
On a plate add the mango, chicken and tomato and red onions and enjoy!
Oh wow, the combination of food on this plate looks so good! LOVE the pickled onion with the sweet mango!
