Home-made Tandoori Paste

Standard

IMG_4681Sick of buying commercial marinades that are more often than not loaded with artificial flavours, preservatives and additives? Why not try whipping up your own? This easy peasy tandoori paste recipe takes just minutes to prepare and pretty much leaves those store bought pastes for dead when it comes to flavour and overall nutritional value!

What you need…

–       1 tsp coriander seeds

–       1 tsp black mustard seeds

–       1 tsp fennel seeds

–       1 tsp cumin

–       2 tsp paprika

–       1 tsp turmeric

–       1 tsp cayenne pepper

–       1 tsp dried chilli

–       2 garlic cloves

–       juice of a lemon

What to do…

Throw all the ingredients into a mortar and pestle and bash and grind away until the mixture forms a thick paste. Note: You may need to add a dash of water to help it come together.

Smear the marinade over your favourite cut of lamb, pork or chicken and you will have the smells of India wafting through your kitchen in minutes! Deeelish!

NOTE: you may also like to mix a dollop of natural yoghurt through the marinade for a slightly more subtle, creamier texture!

Enjoy!
