Transform your Indian takeaway into a healthier alternative. The addition of moutabelle, which is a beautiful smoky eggplant/aubergine dip, really lifts the flavour of the tandoori. Marinating the chicken the night before, makes it an easy ‘go to’ dinner when you come home from work.

In This Recipe
In a bowl, mix yoghurt and tandoori paste. Add in chicken breast and coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for no less than 2 hours.
Add all ingredients for the tahini sauce in a blender. Transfer to a covered container and refrigerate.
Peel the grilled eggplants/aubergines, and transfer the flesh to a blender or food processor. Add in the remaining ingredients and process until smooth. You may add a little warm water if it is too thick to process.
Place the chicken breasts onto a preheated 250C/480F grill. Grill for 3-5 minutes per side, basting regularly with olive oil.
Heat the pieces of tortilla over the grill until surface starts to bubble.
Lay each tortilla on a chopping board spread a tablespoon of the moutabelle on one side. Top with lettuce, tandoori chicken, tomato, onions and cucumber. Drizzle with the garlic tahini paste and roll to close. Secure with bamboo skewers and enjoy.
