  • 3-4 florets brocolli
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black salt
  • 1 teaspoon oil

Once the water starts boiling, add the florets of the brocolli and let in the hot water for nearly 3-4 minutes. Seive the brocolli and wash it under flowing water.

  8. Cut the tandoori chicken roughly into small pieces of 1 cm.
  9. Chop the mint leaves roughly. Chop the coriander leaves into small pieces.
  10. Now mix the hung yogurt, chopped lettuce, red cabbage, salt to taste, sugar, black salt, salad mixture, mayonaise, crushed black pepper, garlic, blanched brocolli, chopped coriander leaves, mint leaves and mix well.
  11. In case you are not able to find the salad mixture mentioned above, you can also use the Italian seasoning provided by Dominos with their pizzas.
  12. Now add the sweet chili sauce and sweet onion sauce and mix well.
  13. Add the tandoori chicken pieces and mix well.
  14. Keep it in the refrigerator for next 15 minutes to let cool.
