Tandoori Paste

Although a trip to your local supermarket or Indian specialty store may provide a wide choice of ready-made tandoori pastes by brands such as Pataks, we believe that for a few minutes’ extra effort, you will find yourself rewarded with the true taste of this style of Punjabi cooking.

“Tandoori” takes its name from the type of clay oven (tandoor) that is used extensively throughout India, Pakistan and the Middle East. It was introduced into India by the Moslem Moghuls, who originated in Persia.

Try using our Tandoori paste in South Asian recipes such as the Tandoori Chicken Pizza or Tandoori Chicken with Pilaf.
