Who doesn't love chicken tikka right? And there are so many different marinades to try out! Though nothing tastes as good as chicken tikka made in a tandoor (a traditional clay oven commonly used in India), a garden BBQ grill comes close, and an electric home oven isn't too bad. Since this is a quick (if you exclude the marination time) and easy (but delicious) chicken tikka recipe, we'll use our kitchen oven.

I love a good paneer tikka, and there are so many ways you can make this gorgeous starter. A paneer tikka recipe doesn't necessarily need to involve loads of cream and fat. And it doesn't have to be drowning in spice either. The most delicious paneer tikka recipes allow you taste the paneer and accentuate its flavour with just a few things from your spice rack. I shared my hariyali paneer tikka recipe a few weeks ago, and here is another one of my favourites.
A spicy South Indian starter. Diced chicken marinated overnight, fried and tempered with curry leaves, cashew nuts and green chillies.
I'm obsessed with prawn toast. What? You didn't know? I'm good at hiding my obsessions :) Can't imagine a Chinese/Thai meal out/ takeaway without prawn toast. But I've never dared to make it at home - didn't want to ruin it for myself if it turned out terrible!
Then, last year my friend and I decided to make ourselves a Thai dinner, and I bravely suggested prawn toast to complement her green curry. And then, earlier this year, my husband and I got ourselves a dim sum steamer (more on this later!) and we decided to cook up a Chinese feast, which had to include prawn toast of course. So I've had a bit of practice!
