    Id like to try cooking Indian food next. Anyone have any recommendations on how to prepare chicken without a tandori oven?

    Easy and fast way: get bottled sauce, marinate (not frozen) chicken pieces an hour or so, cook (chicken and sauce) partially covered on low heat until it's cooked.

    just some chicken tikka sauce? is massala any noticeably better with the chicken prepared this way? My favorite curry has to be Saag, I love Spinach.

    Going to have some friends over for stirfried red curry chicken and Tom yum gai this week.

    I'm no expert, but there are Tandoori sauces in jars. Recently I bought (at Stop & Shop / Giant) a Punjabi butter sauce (made in UK) and it tasted great cooked like above. All those sauces taste great as long as the chicken is NOT overcooked. It pays to make that effort.

    I freaking love Thai food!

    Mango salad, tom yum soup, tom kha gai, basil beef, oh how the list goes on!

    As for making tandoori chicken, you can grill it, or use a conventional home oven to roast it.

    You can easily but tandoori sauce in supermarkets, but making your own mix is easy enough. It's basically yogurt, lemon, and a bunch of spices. Check for a recipe online, and see which one you think suits your tastes.

    Tom Yum Goong with plenty of Sriracha sauce is my cure to the starting tickle of sore throat. Works every time.

    These are the best ways to make it in a Western kitchen.
