Malai Tikka Salad

A spicy alternative to a regular cesar salad, this is a great option as a quick healthy alternative to a curry and still maintaining that amazing Hydrabadi flavour. Don't be afraid to be creative with your choice of salad!


  • 1/2 jar (270g) Hydrabadi Tarka Sauce
  • 75ml double cream
  • 1kg boneless chicken thigh or breast
  • 100g rocket
  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • 100g cherry tomotoes
  • 1 medium sized red onion


  • Mix half a jar (135g) Hydrabadi sauce with 75ml double cream.
  • Add 1kg boneless chicken thigh and mix thoroughly until chicken is fully coated. Refrigerate for at least one hour, or ideally overnight.
  • Place in an oven tray and cook in oven for 20 minutes at 200 deg.
  • While the chicken is cooking, cut the cherry tomatoes into halves and finely chop the onion. Mix with the rest of the salad (baby spinach, rocket). Use mint sauce as a salad drizzle or alternatively use a vinaigrette dressing. Be as creative as you want with the salad (olives, sweetcorn, croutons as work well)
  • Once cooked, cut the chicken into small strips and toss into the salad and serve.
