Tandoori Masala is a do-it-all seasoning blend that is traditionally used for dishes cooked in a tandoor oven, especially in North Indian cuisine; it also flavors popular Anglo-Indian curries such as butter chicken and chicken tikka masala. Pure Indian Foods' version is grounded in warm paprika and cumin, with pungent garlic for a deeper flavor and floral undertones from coriander and cardamom. This tandoori masala omits the heat of chili, which you can add yourself for an extra kick. Sandeep and Nalini Agarwal's family-owned company Pure Indian Foods company uses only the best ingredients from small farms in the United States and India. Their products add a nuanced complexity and authenticity to dishes that commercial brands simply can't replicate, and the company is our most-trusted source of high-quality, boldly flavored Indian pantry staples.
Blend Tandoori Masala with kosher salt and a pinch of sugar to use as a rub on all manner of meats for roasting and grilling; the smoky, toasty notes of the tandoori blend enhance the grilled flavor. We particularly like this tandoori blend's warm flavors on salmon, shrimp or steak, paired with a simple raita of thick Greek yogurt blended with mint, cilantro, grated garlic and salt. Add it to melted butter and sizzle for a few moments until aromatic, then drizzle over cauliflower, chickpeas, spinach and even popcorn. Or stir into yogurt flavored with lime juice and salt to use as a vegetable dip.
