Indian Spiced Chicken with Pumpkin, Cauliflower, Cashews and Coriander

August 9, 2018

 This is honestly so delicious and seriously easy to make.  You just throw all the spices in a big bowl with the meat and veg and let it sit in the fridge until you are ready to cook. Then spread it out on a tray and pop it in the oven for 30-45mins. Voila you have a delicious meal with no messy prep to clean up. It is what I like to call a "One Tray Wonder".


It might seem a bit daunting the number of ingredients, but a trip to your local Asian Supermarket or Indian Market to stock up your spice rack will give you such a great resource to make many a boring ingredient out of this world.

You will need...


  • 1 onion

  • 4 garlic cloves crushed

  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds

  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds

  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric

  • 1 tsp Cumin (Ground)

  • 1 tsp Coriander (Ground)

  • 1 tbsp Paprika

  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp of Cayenne Pepper (I leave this out because my Kids don't like it too spicy)

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger (finely grated)

  • 5 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 2 tsp salt



  • 2 Asian Aubergines (Optional)

  • 300g Potatoes Cubed

  • 300g Pumpkin Cubed

  • 200g Cauliflower (broken into florets)

  • 100g Broccoli (broken into florets)

  • 1/2 cup cashew Nuts


  • Bunch of Fresh Coriander Chopped



  • Heat the oven to 200ºC on fan bake.

  • In a large bowl mix the onion, garlic, ginger, spices and olive oil.  

  • Then add to the bowl the potatoes, aubergines, pumpkin, and chicken.

  • Mix well.

  • Spread the mixture out on a large, lined, baking tray or two smaller ones.

  • Place in the oven for 20minutes.

  • After 20 minutes mix in the Cauliflower, Broccoli and Cashews nuts. 

  • Place back into the oven for another 10 minutes until the Cauliflower is slightly golden and nuts roasted.
