The tandoori sauce was easy to make. I used Greek yogurt and added more yogurt to it so it was a bit runny. I left the chicken marinating for about 30 minutes as I waited for the grill to heat up. I’m glad I pounded the chicken breasts down because they still took a bit longer to grill than I anticipated. The meat was not dry, though, which is an accomplishment for my grilling skills.

The Basamti rice was done with one can of coconut milk and three cups of water. The rice still came out nice and rich tasting like when we make rice with full coconut milk, but this was a lot cheaper.

Per most Bitman recipes that I try, this turned out kind of salty. I think all the spices contribute to this, even though I added more yogurt to try and compensate for this. I think I could get away with no salt and only use the spices.
