Bill Granger recipe: Spiced yoghurt and mint
Makes enough marinade for lamb or chicken for 4 people
Sunday 13 July 2014
If you ever wondered how Indian restaurants make their chicken and lamb so tender, a yoghurt marinade is the answer. I've used this on lamb steaks and chops, chicken legs, breast and wings. The result is always meltingly soft.
Juice ½ lemon
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp toasted cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
Handful mint leaves, torn
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Place some chicken or lamb in a large container and toss though the marinade.
Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight.
Before cooking, lift out the meat, brush off any excess yoghurt and season with salt before barbecuing or grilling in the oven.
