So what do you use for your tandoori marinade? The ones I've made from scratch have not been as good as those I've bought as a paste at an Indian grocer and then mixed with yogurt and such. It bothers me that scratch has failed me in this regard.
I have had the same experience. The lack of red color doesn't help, I'm sure. But the stuff I made was nowhere near as flavorful as the Patak's I buy from the store. I consequently bought a 6 pack of the Patak's stuff and gave up on trying to make my own. I'll have to try again though!
