Spicy Prawns with Mint Yogurt Chutney

Barbecues are a favourite on long warm summer days and this spicy Indian style recipe from Yeo Vally confirms why: 

"A light Indian inspired dish which requires very little preparation or cooking. Using Yeo Valley fat free natural yogurt is a great way to create a creamy flavour without piling on the pounds. This is a perfect dish when you need healthy food fast. The light aromatic chutney is also delicious for dipping crudities and strips of naan bread into."
