Directions: How to Cook Tandoori Marinade
In India, meat that has been marinated in a mixture of yogurt and spices is roasted in a giant urn-shaped clay oven called a tandoor. Use this marinade with poultry, lamb or seafood
Drain yogurt in a cheesecloth lined colander in the refrig- erator for 2 hours. Reserve the liquid for another use (baking or sauces).
Place the drained yogurt in a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. Discard bay leaves before cooking.
Makes 1 3/4 cups.
