Take a bite out of Indian traditions with this most satisfying of sandwiches, which puts some of our favourite flavours between bread. Fresh hamburger buns are a perfect vehicle for tender tandoori-spiced chicken thighs, topped with an indulgently creamy slaw and a bright home-made relish featuring roasted cashews, scallions, bright citrus and verdant cilantro. On the side, spiced roasted potatoes complete the feast.

Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the potatoes (quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, flipping halfway through, 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork.

Mise en place
While the potatoes roast, zest and juice the lime. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Finely chop the cashews. In a small bowl, make the spiced mayo by combining the mayonnaise and up to ⅓ of the lime juice (to taste); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P.

Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with S&P. In a bowl, combine the chicken, tandoori paste and up to ½ the remaining lime juice (to taste); stir to combine. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Make the cashew-cilantro relish & slaw
While the chicken cooks, in a medium bowl, combine the cashews, cilantro, up to ½ the white bottoms of the scallion (to taste), as much of the lime zest and remaining lime juice as you’d like, and a drizzle of oil; season with S&P to taste. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, ½ the cashew-cilantro relish, ½ the spiced mayo and as many of the remaining white bottoms of the scallion as you’d like. Toss well.

Toast the buns

Plate your dish
Divide the roasted potatoes and bun bottoms between your plates. Top each bun bottom with an equal portion of the remaining spiced mayo, remaining cilantro-cashew relish and finished tandoori chicken; add a spoonful of the slaw and finish with a bun top. Serve the remaining slaw on the side, topped with as many of the green tops of the scallion as you’d like. Bon appétit!
