  • 4 tbsp low-fat natural yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • a thumb-sized piece ginger, roughly chopped
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • ½ a small bunch coriander, finely chopped, stalks and leaves kept separate
  • 2 large skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¾ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • a small handful cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 250g pouch Uncle Ben’s Spicy Pilau Rice
  • 4 roti, warmed


  • STEP 1

    Put 1/2 the yogurt, a squeeze of lemon juice, garlic, ginger, green chilli and coriander stalks into a small blender or food processor and whizz until smooth. Tip into a bowl and add the chicken, spices and lots of seasoning, and mix really well. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes. Divide the mixture between 4 metal skewers, leaving gaps between each piece to ensure they get well charred.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the grill to high. Put the skewers onto a foil-lined baking sheet and grill for 4-5 minutes on each side until charred and cooked through.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, mix the onion and cherry tomatoes with a good squeeze of lemon juice and some seasoning.

  • STEP 4

    Mix together the coriander leaves and remaining yogurt in a bowl with a squeeze of lemon juice, a little seasoning and a splash of water to loosen.

  • STEP 5

    Heat the rice following pack instructions then divide it between the 4 roti. Pile in the onion, tomatoes and chicken, and finish with the coriander yogurt, wrap up and serve.
