I found this recipe on bbc good food. So I guess I should post a link back to the original recipe.
It turned out quite fantastic really. The only change I made was the salad. I made it healthier and more filling by adding couscous to it.
Couscous is what we call dalia in Hindi or saanja in Marathi. It is very nutritious and a healthier option for the diet conscious as it is full of fiber which makes it very filling too.
This is my recipe for the couscous salad.
- 1/2 cup couscous
- 2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1 large cucumber peeled and finely chopped
- 1/2 cup corn, boiled
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 bunch coriander finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Steam the couscous in a steamer for twenty minutes. Press a grain in between your thumb and forefinger to see if it has become soft. Remove it onto a plate and let it cool for a few minutes.
To this add the tomatoes, cucumber, corn, coriander, and lemon juice. Season it with salt and pepper as per your taste.
Serve with the tandoori potatoes as a beautiful multicolored, healthy and soul satisfying meal.
