Number of Servings: 5


    2 x 3lb Chicken thighs, skinless (approx 1300gs),
    3 tbsps, Tandoori Paste/powder,
    2 tsps (approx 2g), Cumin Powder,
    1 tbsp Extra Light Olive oil,
    6 Whole lemons, without seeds,
    1 tsp, Garlic Paste,
    1 tsp, Ginger Paste,
    2 tbsp, Salt.


Make slashes in the meat and rub salt lightly into the chicken and set aside for 10 minutes. Marinate chicken in remaining ingredients for 6-8 hours.

Squeeze all the lemons in a seperate bowl adding all the ingredients, add all the chicken into the mixture and leave for 30 minutes.

Put some kitchen foil in a large aluminium pan (make sure the whole pan is completely covered with in), add all the chicken into the pan and close the foil to cover the meat and cover the pan with lid. Put on medium to low flame for 30-45 minutes.

Now take the pan off the heat and open the foil (be careful of the steam), whilst chicken is still in the pan, drain all the mixture out of the pan. Once drained cover the foil again, without the lid on the pan, put the pan upon medium to low heat for 30 - 45 minutes.

Serve accordingly, either with yoghurt or ketchup sauce!
