Main Ingredients

4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons curry paste
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Raita Sauce

1/2 of a medium sized cucumber, grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain, lowfat yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice


Prepare grill.  Place chicken breasts between two layers of plastic wrap then pound them using the flat side of a meat mallet or firmly rolled using a rolling pin to flatten them.  In a small glass or metal bowl to avoid staining, combine the curry paste, oil, sugar, ginger and cumin. Sprinkle the spices over each side of the chicken then grill for 10-15 minutes, turning once or until the meat is cooked through.  Make the raita sauce: In a small bowl, add the grated cucumber, salt, yogurt, mint and lemon juice. Stir until combined.  Serve the chicken and pass the raita at the table.
