Our Great Taste Award winning Pure Punjabi Tandoori Masala jar makes 8-9 servings for a family of four. This is not a ‘curry sauce’ so there is no need to tip out half the jar as the ingredients are fresh and the spices freshly ground, so a teaspoon per chicken breast is more than enough, depending on how long you leave to marinade. We recommend overnight if using a smaller quantity. Use up to a tablespoon per chicken breast if you can only marinade for a short time and rub into the flesh to allow the flavours to penetrate.
PROUD AND THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT… in addition to our 2013 GTA 1 GOLD STAR,
THE GREAT TASTE AWARDS FOR 2016 HAVE JUST GIVEN OUR TANDOORI MASALA…
2 GOLD STARS !
“Pure Punjabi Tandoori Masala is the most freshly made tandoori paste I have found, with every ingredient crushed and ground from scratch in the Pure Punjabi kitchen, which is why I only need to use a small amount when making my Tandoori Monkfish or creating other recipes. It’s an amazing product and I wouldn’t think of using any other Tandoori Masala because the quality and freshness are what set it apart” …

“The tandoori paste was excellent, you could taste the freshness in it and it was just so different from the powdery mixtures.”

Tandoori chicken is a world famous, and world favourite, dish. The chicken is marinated in a special blend of spices that give a depth of flavour that is unparalleled. Every jar of Pure Punjabi’s Tandoori Masala is made by hand, with every ingredient chopped, blended and squeezed by us. We NEVER use bottled ingredients and even the lemon juice is from whole lemons.
Modern day, supermarket versions of tandoori masala use red food colouring, which is not only unhealthy, but not true to the traditional ingredients. Pure Punjabi’s Tandoori Masala gets its deep red colour from smoky paprika – not food colouring.
You can rest assured that not only is this a premium product, but that every ingredient is a natural ingredient. If you’re worried about allergies (cinnamon is the only allergen for those with this rare allergy), or concerned about the quality of the food you eat, then look no further!
Tandoori chicken is traditionally cooked in a clay oven, called a tandoor, which gives the it the name ‘tandoori’ masala. This oven is very similar to a modern day pizza oven and cooks the chicken to perfection, giving the meat a wonderful charred finish.
If you would like to make the traditional meal of Tandoori chicken served with the naan bread accompaniment, have a look at our Tandoori Masala & Naan kit .
Making naan bread usually requires the intense heat of the traditional tandoor clay oven, however, if you have a grill that goes to a very high temperature setting , then you can make delicious naan bread at home.
(This naan bread has been been made at one of our cookery workshops using our grill, which is a normal domestic grill)
