  • 1 medium cauliflower, cut into big florets
  • 200g natural yogurt
  • 4 tbsp tandoori paste
  • ½ tsp salt


  • 300g new potatoes, halved
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ lime, juice
  • 25g pack fresh mint, leaves finely chopped (smaller ones kept whole)
  • 28g pack fresh coriander, leaves finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp chaat masala


  1. Light a barbecue and wait until the coals turn grey. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil, then add the cauliflower florets; simmer for 2-3 minutes (to just soften them slightly). Drain and leave to cool for 2 minutes. Gently press the florets with the palm of your hand to flatten them slightly.

  2. Combine the yogurt with the tandoori paste and salt; spread it over the cauliflower florets, making sure it covers them completely. When you’re ready to cook, brush the barbecue grill with oil then add the florets. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and crisp.

  3. Meanwhile, make the salad. Boil the potatoes for 7-8 minutes until tender. Drain and allow to cool for 2 minutes. Put the remaining ingredients in a bowl and combine well. Add the potatoes, mix well again and serve with the cauliflower.
