Indian dishes have become increasingly popular as many restaurants have sprung up in even the smallest of towns across the states in recent years. A spicy, colorful dish, grilled chicken curry is fun to make with the family – just take care as the curry paste can stain hands and clothes! Serve with rice or vegetables.

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
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.
