Loved this recipe!!! I included baby spinach in the salad & made a dressing with Dijon mustard, honey & white wine vinegar. Also used Cajun spice instead of gram masala. Will definitely be making again, especially during summer

Utterly, utterly divine. I did the chicken in the oven, as I wanted to keep it all low fat and I don't have a griddle pan. 25 mins on a medium to high heat and it was still juicy and lovely. The lime yoghurt mixture was to die for - and I was surprised at how well Coriander and Mango went together! Definitely a do-again. :-)

Absolutely lovely - Very refreshing, filling yet light evening meal. My garam masala is cinnamon heavy which worked nicely with the mango.

It also went very well with a cold glass of white! I always sprinkle my yoghurt/raita with a tiny amount of cayenne pepper (it looks nice as well) and I added finely chopped cucumber to the yoghurt to bulk it out a little.

My now retired husband is learning to cook and he tried this using fajita spice mix and soya bifidus instead of yogurt - utterly delicious and very light and fresh - a great summer dish!
