For the chicken:
Cut chicken down the centre of the backbone, from the cavity to the neck. Remove the backbone. Flatten the chicken out - breasts should be in the middle of the chook and wings and legs on the outside.
Place some cling film over the top of the flattened chicken and using a meat mallet or a rolling pin, bang it until it becomes evenly flat. You can get your butcher to do this for you.
Mix together tandoori paste, yoghurt and a squeeze of lemon and rub all over chicken, top and bottom.
Place the chicken on a rack in a baking tray lined with foil and bake in a hot oven for about 45 mins to 1 hour (usually 20 mins on each side) depending on size of chicken and popping it under the grill for the final 5 mins.
For the pilaf:
Boil 4 cups of water in a saucepan.
Lightly sauté onions, garlic, spices in oil for a few minutes until onion is opaque. Add pistachios.
Add rice and cook for a further minute, coating the rice with the spices.
Add a stock cube to the boiling water. Add the stock water to the rice and stir. Add a pinch of salt and cover with a lid.
Reduce heat to as low as possible and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir rice through and serve when you are ready. It doesn’t hurt to allow it to rest for a while!
For the raita:
Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Cut the chicken into 4 pieces. Add an extra dollop of yoghurt on the chicken, serve with rice and raita.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
