Which vegetables/pulses go with tandoori?

(13 Posts)

I tried spinach and chick pea tandoori. It was not nice.

I'm using partake curry paste if it matters.

I've done tandoori mushrooms before and they were lovely but I made my own paste.

I think normally you mix the tandoori paste with yoghurt then slather it over the vege and roast them in an oiled tray, if that helps at all?

A tandori is an oven so you need veg you can bake/roast. Almost any Root veg sould work. Also onions.

I did it in a pan.



I'm clearly an idiot!

are you veggie?

generally tandoori masala is for meat....

Yes, I'm veggie.

Fluffy -

You could try just roasting some cauliflower florets with oil, cumin seeds, salt and pepper and maybe some mustard seeds and/or chilli flakes. Lovely.

Ah, I gather you're using Patak's Tandoori paste to make a curry in a pan, and want to know which veggies and lentils would work?

The usual use of Tandoori paste is as an ingredient in a marinade for meat that you're then going to cook in a really hot oven. It's not a curry paste as such. I'm trying to think of a vegetable you could cook this way and failing miserably, I'm afraid!

Oh bugger. Knew I ought to have stuck to Korma.
