Tandoori Marinade is such a simple recipe that you will use it again and again. I make this marinade a day in advance to make sure the flavours are totally absorbed. Also, this marinade can be used on all parts of a chicken and other meats.

  • Using a pestle and mortar or whatever you have to hand, crush the fenugreek leaves.
  • Add the remaining spices and stir to combine.
  • Add the spice mixture to the yoghurt.
  • Add the chicken to the mixture making sure that all sides are fully covered.
