Diaspora Co's Tandoori Masala Master Guide
Recipe by: Team Diaspora
Serves: 4 to 6
Sourced from 40 small regenerative family farms across India and Sri Lanka, our Tandoori Masala includes 15 single-origin, freshly-harvested spices for a perfect balance of spicy, sour, sweet, earthy, and umami flavors. Featuring turmeric, cumin, and coriander for earthiness; salt, garlic, and ginger for a wide, flavorful base; two types of chillies for a dynamic kick and added aroma and brightness; amchur for tartness; black cardamom for smokiness; jaggery for sweetness; and cinnamon, green cardamom, fenugreek leaves, and saffron for richness.
Each jar has about 8 tablespoons of tandoori masala, which is enough for up to 3 pounds of chicken, 24 ounces paneer (we used Sach Foods paneer when testing), 2 to 3 pounds of shrimp, or a few pounds of the vegetables of your choice. We've included two recipes below: 1) for a yogurt-based marinade 2) for an oil-based marinade. These recipes use half a jar of the tandoori masala, but can easily be doubled if you are cooking for a larger crowd.
Our tandoori masala does have a little bit of salt in it, but you might want to add a little extra. Once you mix up the marinade, taste it before you add any raw proteins, and season with salt, if needed.
