The Challenge - Monday Week 2

Almost two weeks and I had done so well with the food shopping! But, a trip to Katanning today and a leisurely stroll around Woolworths changed all that.

Today's grocery spend was $105.87. Lots of veggies, some cheese, cream cheese, cream and ricotta and I did splurge on some Carnavon bananas. I figured that customers have to buy them at that price or the supermarket will stop buying them.

Tea tonight was Tandoori Chicken. A wonderful spice blend that I adapted and made in the TMX and then mixed with plain yoghurt.

Tandoori Spice Mix
3 Tbs garlic salt
4 Tbsp paprika
2 Tbsp cumin
2 Tbsp ground coriander
2 Tbsp ground ginger (or can use fresh)
2 Tbsp ground cardamom
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp turmeric
1 Tbps garam masala

For 8 pieces of chicken, blend 4 Tbsp of the Tandoori Spice Mix with 400g plain yoghurt & 4 Tbsp lemon juice and marinate overnight in the fridge. Turn over in marinade to completely coat.
To cook, place chicken pieces on a rack over an oven tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in a very hot oven for 20 minutes or so or until cooked

Serve with a fresh salad and lime wedges.
