Recipe Ingredients

Recipe Preparation

Make a marinade of yoghurt, lime juice, chilli powder or paprika, five
spice powder (we would used "garam masala" which is a powder of
cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper corns) paste
of green chillis, ginger-garlic paste, a pinch of red food colouring
and salt. Marinate it for at least three to four hours (leaving it
overnight would be best). Then heat your oven, pop the chicken pieces
in an oven-proof dish, pour in a little of the marinade and for the
effect of the "tandoor" place a piece of live-coal in your oven (it
gives a wonderful aroma). It takes around 10-15 minutes to get done
but around half way open the oven and brush the chicken with oil.
Make sure not to overdo it. It should be just done for the chicken to
be nice and succulent. When it is nice and dry serve it on a bed of
lettuce with lemon wedges (which could also be squeesed on the
chicken before serving) and a sprig of parsley.

Tandoori is a style of cooking which is close to grilling. In olden
times it used to be done in big clay pots which used to be put under
the ground for the meat to cook..but now we have "tandoors" or ovens
could be used too.

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

As an alternative to focusing on the junk foods you ought to eliminate from your dietary regime, direct your attention to the sensible foods that you might want to introduce to your daily routine. If you are able to inject the recommended portions healthy fruit & vegetables into your meal plan, you will discover that stop feeling hungry and have a far lower chance of being seduced by those damaging mid-morning potato chips.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. A good number of are only slightly lowered and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.

* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda. Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to use splenda instead. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.

Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)

The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.

Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.

. Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.

Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
