The long marinating time creates a strong and bitey Tandoori taste.

Ingredients

Fennel seeds

½ tsp

Tandoori paste

2 tbs

Low-fat natural yoghurt

200 g

Skinless chicken thigh

540 g, cut into 4 pieces

Naan bread

2 medium

Corn

2 individual, cobs, cut into 2cm-thick slices

Tomato(es)

4 small, (roma), halved

Asparagus

2 bunch(es), trimmed

Mushrooms

4 whole, black, trimmed

Fruit chutney

cup(s), mango

Fresh coriander

2 tbs, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  1. Place fennel seeds in a small non-stick frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Crush seeds in a mortar and pestle until ground into a powder.
  2. Combine tandoori paste, ground fennel and 2 tablespoons yoghurt in a shallow glass or ceramic bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 220°C or 200°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Arrange chicken on prepared tray and bake for 40 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Wrap naan bread in foil and heat in oven following packet instructions.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a chargrill or barbecue over high heat. Lightly spray corn, tomatoes, asparagus and mushrooms with oil and cook, turning occasionally, for 8–10 minutes or until golden and tender.
  5. Combine chutney, coriander and remaining yoghurt in a small bowl. Arrange chicken and vegetables on a serving platter. Serve with the mango chutney yoghurt and warm naan bread.

Notes

Husk corn just before cooking. Pull off the leaves and as much of the silk (fine white threads) as you can. Rub the cob with paper towel to remove any remaining fibres.
