MEGAMASTER RECIPE TIPS

Switch to chicken thighs for juicier chicken, or even swop out for beef steak if you prefer. 

Tip 02 Tip 02

For a low carb option, serve with cauliflower rice or salad instead of a roti.

Tip 03 Tip 03

Make your own tsatsiki by combining 1 cup Greek yoghurt with 1/2 cup finely diced cucumber, 2 crushed garlic cloves and the juice of 1 lemon. Season with salt and pepper.
