Curry Rubbed Roast Chicken with Spiced Turmeric Rice

IMG20160425203638IMG20160425204101

This is a fusion dish i designed for Ben, putting everything he loves together on a plate. Curry rubbed roast chicken and vegetables with spiced turmeric rice, along with cooling tzatziki sauc. I never expected the flavours to go so well together! The spiciness, coolness, fragrance, all complimented each other perfectly. The chicken had a really crispy spiced skin, while the meat is so juicy that it squirted out juices the minute i put my fork into it. The cooling tzatziki sauce made the already delicious spiced rice to die for. Even the yogurt was freshly home made! We had a really pleasant dinner, and I am very proud to have put my love on this plate for my beloved husband ❀
