This rub is essentially the base for a great tandoori marinade. While this rub is intended for chicken, it can be used on all types of poultry, pork, fish and seafood.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne

How to Make It

1. Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. 

2. To use, rub mixture over chicken, cover, and place into refrigerator for 1 hours before grilling or baking.

3. The mixture can be added to plain yogurt and lemon or lime juice to form a delicious marinade. In this case, place chicken in a resealable plastic bag, add marinade made out of rub ingredients and place into refrigerator for 2 to 6 hours.
