Tandoori marinade

SuchTaste | Sep 21, 2013 08:14 PM

Here's my draft for Tandoori marinade with a few questions:

coriander, cumin, paprika, Kashmiri red chili, fresh ginger-garlic paste, yogurt, nutmeg, black pepper, salt, kasoori methi, either lemon or lime

Questions:
which, lime or lemon?
cardamom powder?
cinnamon?
turmeric?
garam masala?
fresh onion grated?
fresh coriander leaves (in addition to coriander powder)?
fenugreek powder?
curry leaves ground into powder?
ginger powder (in addition to fresh)?
amchoor powder?

Am I missing something special? Is it possible to overcrowd the marinade? I want that really deep mouth-watering flavor, no shortcuts.
