TandooriMost people seem to think that tandoori is a recipe. In fact, it is a cooking method that has become synonymous with the spice recipe. With simple words it is marinated meat cooked in intense fire in a tandoor. A tandoor is a clay oven that is built of clay.
In the West, tandoori has come to mean a particular spicy recipe and not a cooking method. Even if you do not have a clay oven or pot, you can use this seasoning to marinate chicken, meat or mix it with plain yogurt.
