“This is a very simple recipe which tastes great and smells wonderful while cooking as you get the spicy smell from the tandoori and the sweet smell from the coconut rice. It does not take long to prepare you can either toss chicken in yogurt and tandoori paste and get cooking or if you want to infuse marinate for a few hours. So it is a great after work fast meal or throw it all in zip lock bag in the morning before you leave and just pop it in the oven when you get in.”
