Tandoori spice mix is used to marinate chicken pieces for the very popular Indian dish, Tandoori Chicken. This spice mix consists of a variety of warm, smokey, aromatic spices.
I like to double the spice mix and have extra on hand to prepare the marinade in a few minutes. (Just weigh out 45g and add to the coconut cream and lime juice and the marinade is all done). Tandoori Chicken recipe here.
