Tandoori chicken with coriander and mint yoghurt dip

tandoori chicken with mint dip

The first time I tasted tandoori chicken was in the early 90’s, My mum took me and my sister to an Indian restaurant in Bournemouth, I think I had korma as I was scared of spicy food back then, but my mum had tandoori chicken. I remember it’s vivid red colour and blackened flesh, puzzled and curious to know what this was I dived in – much to my mothers disgust I enjoyed it to such degree that my hand was slapped several times. Like I have said many times before our relationship is somewhat defunct null and void, we don’t speak anymore for many reasons but some of my most prominent food memories come from her.

The most important thing to remember with this recipe is patience, you cannot rush this. If you want it for dinner tonight then forget it, it needs time to marinate and tenderize.
