    Hi All,

    This is my recipe that I have done many times and is a crowd pleaser if everything falls in place :)
    This involves a bit of prep but the results are just stunning..

    I will use proper charcoal - Not yucky head beads :mad:

    I am preparing this for Bbq this Sat.
    Posting pictures as we go...

    Hope you all enjoy :weirdo:

    That is awesome - I envy your Tandoor.

    I'd be interested in knowing the spices that are in your sauces - great work though! Looks amazing.

    Tandoor, I got from Melbourne - there is a mob that imports from UK.

    For Spices:

    Salt
    Turmeric
    Corriander Powder
    Cumin Powder
    Garam Masala
    Sugar (for the balance)
    Mango Powder
    Cumin Seeds (they go first in oil)
    Black Salt
    Chilli Powder
    Dried Fenugeek leaves (Distinct taste - use a little else sauce will go bitter)
    Yougurt
    Cream

    Yum, I love the dried fenugreek leaves, we've started using them in our palak paneer and love the results. Cheers.

    I got the biggest mouthful of saliva reading through and feel deflated that I couldn't eat it at the end. Great work! :thumbup:

    haha.. I know the feeling.
    For several years I went through that till I bought the Tandoor :)

    I am sure there would be several authentic Tandoori restaurants in Brisbane, else just buy a Tandoor mate.

    That looks really good.

    Quantities would be great if it's not too much trouble.

    ok start you off with the Gravy sauce, as you can chuck anything in there and it will be fine...

    Serves - 6 appox

    start with hot oil (2-3 table spoons)

    put:
    Cumin seeds - 1 tea spoon
    half an inch of cinnamon stick

    2 onions
    3 tomatoes
    6 cloves garlic
    1 inch ginger
    salt to taste
    chilli to taste
    Turmeric - 1/2 tea spoon
    coriander powder - 1 table spoon
    cumin powder - 1 table spoon
    Garam Masala - 1 team spoon
    Sugar - 1 tea spoon
    Mango powder - 1 tea spoon
    Black Salt (optional) - 1 tea spoon
    Dried Fenugreek leaves - 1 table spoon
    Cream - 100 ml
    Plain Yogurt - 2 table spoons
    50-100 gms

    You can fry/oven bake any meat and put it in there.

    The key it to ensure spices cook properly and never burn - add water if required.
    once you are satisfied with the taste and gravy comes to boil, put the gravy on lowest heat and leave it for 45 min - 1 hr, stirring every 10 min.
    this will bring the whole thing together.

    let me know when you gonna cook it now :)

    yes, they have awesome flavor!
    Palak paneer is a beautiful dish if you get it right

    tried tandoori on the kamado the other night.
    cheated with the spices but it turned out GREAT.
    nothing like cooking on charcoal
