Tandoori-Style Marinade

The acidity in yogurt acts as a tenderizer, making it a perfect ingredient in marinades for grilled foods. For chicken or lamb, season with salt and pepper, coat evenly in the marinade, and place in a nonreactive container. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. For fish, do not marinate more than 30 minutes.

What to buy: Use plain, natural, organic whole-milk yogurt like Stonyfield Farm. It’s tangier and less thick than other brands.

Tips for Beef and Lamb


Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
