This dish is a way we discovered to use our Spice of the Month, Coconut and Beetroot curry blend, and follows the same principles as a ‘normal’ Tandoori but tastes completely different. It works very well with chicken of course, but an interesting variation is to use fish – try cod, swordfish, salmon or tuna steaks, any firm, meaty fish. The method uses coconut milk instead of the more usual yoghurt, and it is not as spicy hot as a regular tandoori so if you like it hot, add a teaspoon or two of Kashmiri chilli powder. There aren’t many ingredients involved, and of course cooking just involves sticking a tray in the oven, so this is very easy to do if you don’t have much time.
