Post by Nuviana »

Mix 3 tablespoons tandoori paste with 3 tablepoons greek yoghurt . marinate 4 large chicken thighs least an hr ..pref overnight.

cook on a cake rack over an oven tray in oven 35 mins,, ish

serve with rice and yoghurt dressing.
if u want it to look pretty sprinkle coriander over when serving.

yoghurt dressing - mix cup of greek yoghurt , 1 teaspoon cumin , bout half cup chopped mint leaves and a squeeze of lemon or lime. .

tip also is double up recipe.. and freeze spare chicken..super for pizza, quesadillas or wraps.

Tandoori paste.....

One simple version (For the powder stuffs = always best to get seeds and chuck em in a pan, dry roast for just a few seconds, then grind):

1 inch Ginger, chopped fine
1 inch Garlic, crushed
1 (Tablespoon) Salt
1 Coriander powder
1 Turmeric powder
Pepper to taste
1 Large Tablespoon of Yoghurt
2 Lemon Juice
1 Cumin powder
1 Sweet Paprika powder
1 Cayenne Pepper powder

Mix above, can change quantities in numbers as above = Paste to use in Nuv's method above.

A more complex version, (unashamably nicked from others too many to mention plus my MUM, sozz Ma):

1 Cumin
3/4 - 1, coriander powder
2 cardomom, take seeds out of husk
a few blackpeppercorns, taste
1 Ginger powder
1 Garlic powder
A little Mace
2 Bayleaf, remove stalks
A good pinch Nutmeg
Salt to taste

Grind above together = powder = Garam Masala for recipe below.
Please note everyones Garam Masala is different, it can be added at end of cooking to "brighten" dishes up it is a ubiquitous spice mix. can be made prior and stored or made fresh.

Tandoori paste:

1/2 tsp Paprkia (sweet)
2-3 Large TBL Lemon Juice
Salt to taste
Chilli to taste, dont go nuts, tandoori isnt neccessarily a hot dish
4 tsp Cumin
2 TBL gee or vege oil
Natural Yoghurt, just add enough to get a good consistency, about 2-3 TBL
1 TBL of Garam Masala (as above)

Love to make things from scratch if i possibly can and ma would smak be about the head if i didnt, especially Curries. Sorry Nuv, i guess its not so fast to make up the mix now as per teh subject matter BUT if u make the Garam Masala prior its not so bad.

Hugs Nuv, nice one.

agree making from scratch superior for those that have the palate. however at 1am in the morning.. opening a jar..mixing in yoghurt. coating chicken and leaving in fridge is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better. /hugs
and the family still loved it.
