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.
