1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp oil

4 tsp dry tandoori powder/ paste
Additional salt if needed


1. Add half a pot of yoghurt to a clean bowl, then add 1 tsp of crushed ginger and 1 tsp garlic.
2. Add 1 large tbsp of lemon juice (the acidity helps to make the meat tender), 2 tbsp of oil, 1/2 tsp chilli powder and 4 tsp of tandoori powder/ paste.

4. Add your diced chicken breasts, coat all the pieces thoroughly and leave to marinate for as long as possible, preferably overnight.
