Pre-heat your grill to medium.

Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes and drain.

For the marinade, mix the yoghurt, curry powder, garam masala, chilli powder and coriander in a bowl. Add the chicken and eave to marinade for as long as you can.

Add the chicken to a grill tray. Toss the potatoes in the remaining marinade and place on the same tray ideally in a single layer. Pop under the grill for about 15-20 minutes, turning the chicken every so often.

Whilst the chicken is cooking make the salad by add simply mixing the peeled, cored and chopped cucumber, spinach, red onion, tomatoes with the lime juice and olive oil.

Mix the yoghurt and cumin seed together in a separate small serving bowl.
