This recipe is an adaptation from Nigella Lawson’s Southern Fried Chicken
1. The twist is to add a half a packet (or whole depending on your desired heat level) of Tandoori Chicken Spice (Shan or any brand) to the milk in which the chicken is cooked. A quicker version of this is, frying or baking chicken tenders marinated in yogurt, tandoori spice and coated in flour.
2. Add a half a teaspoon of cinnamon and a half a teaspoon of cardamom powder to your waffle batter that serves four.
3. Mix half a cup of honey with half a cup of ghee (clarified butter) and drizzle over both waffles and chicken for a Deshi twist. Hmmm….a hint of lemon might be good too. Next time, I might add a squeeze of lemon to the honey ghee.
It was sweet, spicy and decadent with the ghee. Next time I would add more tandoori spice (the whole packet instead of just the half). Otherwise, very yummy.
