I found this recipe on the Whole Foods website where it has earned high ratings.  We had Indian take-out last week and I’ve been thinking about trying something at home ever since.  This looks promising.  Yummy and only one ingredient that I don’t recognize.  Not bad!


1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
1 tablespoon tamarind paste
2 teaspoons garam masala
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves


In a large bowl, combine yogurt, ginger, oil, tamarind, garam masala, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, cayenne, and garlic to make a marinade. Add chicken and turn to coat pieces well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Light the grill. When grill is hot, remove chicken from marinade, discarding leftover marinade. Grill the chicken until it is cooked through, about 4 minutes per side, then serve immediately.
