Simple and delicious, tandoori is a good introduction to Indian cuisine. Its bright red color suggests a slightly spicy flavor. We use paprika to create the traditional color and combine with classic Indian spices to bring out the full flavor of beef or lamb. A less-visible ingredient in this lively dish is yogurt, which acts as the tenderizing agent.
Ingredients:

Method: 
Put yogurt, oil, garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, turmeric, paprika and salt into a large bowl and whisk together to combine. Add beef or lamb, toss to coat, cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. (Do not leave in marinade longer than 4 hours as the acidity in the yogurt will over-tenderize the meat.) Preheat grill. Remove meat and discard marinade. Grill beef or lamb, turning once, until desired doneness. Transfer to plates and serve.
