6 ANCA Premium filetted chicken breasts

6 ciabatta buns (you can substitute fresh roosterkoek for a home grown taste, or use any bun you prefer)


2 tbsp tomato puree

200g Greek yoghurt

knob of ginger, very finely grated

4 garlic cloves, very finely grated or crushed

2 tbsp garam masala

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
