Let me start by saying that I don’t have a tandoor. When I moved into a home with a little garden, I did have this wild idea of building my own tandoor (a cylindrical clay oven used for baking / cooking heated by burning coals inside it). I can’t say I have completely abandoned that idea but this tandoori recipe doesn’t need a ‘tandoor’. If you have a microwave oven with a grill or the grill function in a regular convection oven, that’s great. If you don’t have either ovens, you can use a non stick skillet to grill these.
The best part about this recipe is you can make perfectly delicious appetisers using minimal or no oil. Use a low-carb vegetable like broccoli, cauliflower or bell peppers (stuffed or as it is), and you have a perfect low carb vegetarian side dish. For any vegetable, the basic steps are the same.
Step one: Clean and partly cook the vegetable.
Step two: Marinate the vegetable.
Step three: Grill.
I use the same marinade for both recipes, mostly eye-balling the ingredients to make roughly over a cup of marinade.
