A bright, fresh salad tossed with roasted pumpkin and topped with flavoursome tandoori chicken. A protein-dense dish packed with spices that are antioxidant-rich and promote healthy digestion.
1. Set oven to 220ºC.

Peel and grate ginger. Combine with lemon juice, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 tbsp turmeric, 1 1/2 tbsp garam masala, 2 tbsp tomato paste, salt and pepper in a baking dish.

2. Thickly slice onion and quarter chicken fillets. Add to marinade and toss to coat. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.

3. Toss pumpkin on a lined oven tray with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

4. Slice cucumber into rounds. Halve cherry tomatoes and chop coriander (reserve some for garnish). Toss together with mesclun leaves.

5. Whisk together 1 tbsp vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 

Toss dressing through fresh salad and roast pumpkin.

6. Divide salad between plates. Top with tandoori chicken and garnish with reserved coriander. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt.

Notes:
If possible, allow the pumpkin to cool before tossing through salad.
