Tandoori Marinade Recipes: How To Make Restaurant-style Tandoori Marinade


Welcome to the world of Tandoori marinades! Learn how to make restaurant-style Tandoori marinade in just a few simple steps.


First, gather all the necessary ingredients: yogurt, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, garam masala, and salt.


In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of garam masala, and 1 teaspoon of salt.


For a smoky flavor, add 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika or 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke to the marinade.


Next, add 1 tablespoon of oil to the marinade. This will help the marinade stick to the meat and prevent it from drying out.


Now it's time to add the star ingredient - tandoori masala. Use 2 tablespoons for a mild flavor or 3 tablespoons for a spicier kick.


Mix everything together until well combined. Your Tandoori marinade is now ready to use!


Marinate your choice of protein - chicken, fish, or vegetables - in the Tandoori marinade for at least 2 hours, or overnight for maximum flavor.


When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 400°F and place the marinated protein on a baking sheet. Cook for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.


Serve your delicious Tandoori dish with a side of naan bread and enjoy the authentic flavors of India in the comfort of your own home. Bon appétit!
