Tandoori Prawns with Pilau Rice and Raita

It is very satisfying looking in the freezer and trying to decide what to make with what’s been forgotten about.I love to make my own sauces and pastes and I enjoy the trial and error, but for ease for this recipe you can just buy one as there are some really great ones out there.The recipe for the Pilau Rice is already posted on cookeatyumtsv, just use the search button.Ingredients
1kg banana prawns, peeled and deveined
Pilau rice
1/2 jar tandoori paste
500g natural yoghurt
10g chopped fresh mint
10g chopped fresh coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
Squeeze of lemon
Milk to reach thick pouring consistencyMethod
Wash the prawns and dry with paper towel.
Wear a pair of food prep gloves and generously coat each prawn in the tandoori paste.
Cover in cling film and leave in the fridge for an hour.
I grilled these prawns with a little spray of oil but you can BBQ them if you prefer.To make the raita simply mix the yoghurt, cumin, coriander and mint. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Add just enough milk to create a thick but pouring consistency.Now put it all together and enjoy.Amazing what you can do with some rice, frozen prawns, and a little imagination.
Roti, prawns and pilau were all in the freezer and just needed to be put together 😋
