How much do you like the flavors of India? We love it and my Easy Tandoori Chicken is a great way to explore Indian food.Jump to Recipe
If you have not tried Indian food, then this is your recipe. Tandoori chicken is mild on the Indian spice scale (my term). Tandoori chicken has spice but the predominant flavor is smoky. The recipe comes together so easily and so quickly. A tandoori spice mix is mixed into yogurt. The mixture is then rubbed on the chicken for an hour or overnight. When ready to cook, the extra marinade is shaken off and the chicken is grilled on an outdoor grill. That is all it takes.

If you would like a healthy, tasty vegan recipe, check out this recipe for RED LENTIL CURRY. One recipe that I love and make frequently is this MASALA LENTILS. My dish is vegan, tasty and a little bit spicy.
If you have not made Indian food before, there will be two challenges. The first challenge is finding the spices needed for the dishes. You can go to a spice store and find anything you need, no matter how exotic. Your grocery store will have a number of the basics where you can find curry or tandoori mixes. The second challenge is that a number of recipes have quite a few steps. So try my tandoori chicken to get a start. When you get your confidence up, this link leads you to a number of my INDIAN RECIPES with more difficulty.
