UK Style Tandoori Chicken

Post by pom » Sat May 02, 2009 8:54 am

Hi All

Not been on for a few months, but summer is nealry upon us in England so time to dust off the barbie!

I love indian food and especially the Tandoori dishes, this is my own creation thats a balance between being easy to prepare and tastes very authentic.

I'm posting this in the poultry section but I have tandoorried (is that even a word!) loads of cuts from chops to ribs to steaks!

You only need 2 ingredients to prepare the marinade:

1. Greek style yogurt (or any live yogurt)
2. Tandoori Paste, I use Pataks (pic below:

Mix the yogurt (more the better around 1 pint is good) and tandoori paste together, then dump in whatver meat you have and leave for a min of 4 hours. Overnight is ok. Cook it on the smoker until the meat is cooked to your liking, not too hot or it will go black.

I chop some fresh coriander to go on just before eating maybe with a nice indian style coriander relish (I'll post my recipe in the vegge section).

Yummy hot or cold.


cheers

Dude!

Sounds nice! I will be doing some tandoori chicken kebabs this summer too.

Have you thought about making your own 'paste'.

pom, we also use Pataks quite often here at home. One of our favourite recipes is to marinade chicken thighs in Biriyani (done the same, with paste and yogurt) and smoked on the wsm. Unbelievable flavour!

How much tandoori paste to the pint of yogurt? I'd like to try that. Love Asian food, smoked curry sounds great to me.

doogster, the directions will be on the bottle, but I think we used about 2 big TBSP biriyani paste to ~2 cups yogurt for a basic chicken thigh marinade. It depends on how strong you want it I suppose.
