Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a fun rendition of Tandoori. It is adapted from a recipe in Cuisine At Home seven years ago. Since most people don't have a tandoor; a wood clay oven, similar results can be obtained by grilling the turkey on high heat. Don't be put off by the amount of spices used.

The final harvest of green tomatoes I relegated to a batch of Piccalilli, a relish of East Indian origin. Just can't get enough of that lightly pungent and savory condiment....and it’s way easy to make using a food processor for most of the chopping tasks. Make a batch of this to give as holiday gifts, and to enjoy yourself through…

Gujarati Dal

Gujarati Dal by Mihir Shah

This is comfort food my mom has made for as long as I've been around. She's been able to hook my kids on it; Dal is a healthy way to get protein into their diet. I serve it with some rice and yogurt. It also holds its flavor really well as a leftover snack.

Now Masoor Dal is not frequently made in…
