Tandoori Ground Turkey over Basmati Rice

Minty Smashed Cucumber Salad

Cooking time

25 minutes




880 /serving

We’re going high-contrast with this Indian-style classic. Double down on that unmistakable sun-kissed taste and brick-red colour by using both tandoori paste and our From Tandoor to Tannur spice blend for the ground turkey. Then swirl in some yogurt and lemon zest to amp it up before serving over basmati rice. On the other end of the spectrum, the mouth-puckering salad has some crazy crunch with cucumbers (slightly smashed under a knife), radishes and shards of cabbage, all sharpened with fresh mint.

Cook the rice
Peel, halve and small-dice the onion. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Cook ½ the onion, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions), ⅓ of the spices and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and gently stir in 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the rice cooks, zest and juice the lemon. Quarter the radishes. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; using the side of your knife, gently smash down the halves until slightly flattened and cut into large chunks. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves.

Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through. Add the tandoori paste, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min. Remove from the heat. Stir in the lemon zest and ⅓ of the yogurt until combined.
