Want a badaboom presentation for your next dinner party? The Cauliflower Tandoori is a great way to go, plus it’s healthy, easy and mildly spicy, who could resist? I’m a big fan of Indian food, although the mild type of Indian. My husband is a big fan of the Vandaloo sauce which is so crazy spicy, I wish I could forget the pain and taste the actual sauce but it’s just impossible for me. Also I’ve experienced already the effect of too spicy food with a sip of wine and let say my body didn’t agree… so in other words; mild to medium spicy Indian are my favorites. Tandoori marinade is one of the softest Indian sauces and super tasty, it’s almost too mild that I always add a touch of Garam Masala (spicy mix of spices) to add a little spark to my tandoori. Tandoori marinade/paste I know… I know… Tandoori actually…

Tandoori chicken-pineapple skewers is an easy, packed with indian flavors dish, especially  great on the BBQ. I do not own one, so I make my skewers in the boring oven and they still taste fantastic.

So to all BBQ owners out there, try this out and send me some news! or even better invite me over.…

Mango Chicken tandoori skewers is such a healthy and warm dish. Tandoori chicken by definition is suppose to be cooked into a Tandoor (clay) oven… but who owns one of those in the western world?? So I simply use the Paste (marinade) called Tandoori, which you can find in markets around the world. The sauce is red, delicious and spicy… yet not “hot” spiced. I love to eat my Tandoori chicken with a side sauce of yogurt, cilantro and lime and a few pieces of pepper and mango. This fruity touch could be substituted by pineapple. The balance in this dish is perfect, spicy, creamy smooth and fruity! Top combinaison and extra healthy. Obviously, since I am on the “eternal diet” I used a low fat greek yogurt for the sauce and the marinade of the chicken. Tandoori chicken needs to marinade into a mix of plain yogurt and tandoori paste for a…
