Chicken Yoghurt

This is what Horror Kitchen is all about. Things that you think should go together. Try it. Does it work? Um... kinda? Note, this makes an excellent filling for wraps if you make way too much. Like I did.

1 tub natural yoghurt (about 425g, but it doesn't really matter)
fresh mint
lime juice
garam masala powder
2 chicken breasts
1 onion


# Grab a mixing bowl and put the yoghurt in it. Give it a mix because yoghurt does this separatey-out thing that is no good.

# Chop up a good handful of fresh mint and mix it into the yoghurt. Add a squeeze of lime juice.

# Transfer about 2/3 of the yoghurt to a different bowl. Put this in the fridge and forget about it for a while.

# Stir a tablespoon of garam masala into the remaining yoghurt. You could also use tandoori masala, but I like garam. So ner.

# Finely chop up chicken breasts into little cubes.

# Stir into yoghurt. Leave to marinate, preferably overnight but anything more than a couple of hours is fine.

# Finely chop an onion and gently fry in a big pan to soften up and colour a bit.

# Add marinated chicken. Turn up the heat. It's going to be very liquidy for a while, but press on until all the moisture is gone.

# Leave chicken to cool. Serve with that yoghurt that was separated off earlier and bread or rice of your choosing. Yum!

My photography skills leave a lot to be desired. It looks really tasty in real life, honest.
