What is for Dinner?

Are you forever asking yourself What is for Dinner? People often ask me how I can be bothered cooking everyday and to be honest, it is not easy however; I have a few go to recipes that take no time at all and I thought I would share with you all one of my go to meals (especially in the warmer months when you don’t want to be standing over a hot stove for too long.)

Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly you are ready to make your wraps.

Place a handful of the salad on a wrap and then add some chicken.

This particular brand of Tandoori paste I used was extra spicy so you can also add some Greek yogurt, this will make it more mild without ruining the taste.

If you want to be semi authentic you could also make a cucumber and yogurt dip to go on top instead of just using plain yogurt.

To make my quick version of the Raita dip all you need to do is add the following to the Greek Yogurt:

1 cucumber (finely chopped)
1/4 cup of chopped coriander (Cilantro)
2 tablespoons of lemon juice

For an Authentic Raita Dip you would need to check out google.

For those of you who follow my blog would know I did a blog on cooking from scratch (which is my preferred method) so I will leave a link to a recipe for Tandoori Paste below if you dont want to use one from the store (Note this will take an approx extra 10 minutes to make)
