Why I Love This Recipe

I inadvertently used garam masala instead of tandoori spice mix in this, and discovered that the garam masala has much more heat to it that I wasn't anticipating!

Questions, Comments & Reviews

That's a great idea! I've always thought that tandoori chicken should have more of a kick. I've never made tandoori chicken, but maybe I'll try it this way.

It's actually a couscous salad.

This looks absolutely delicious and exotic, a perfect dinner for two. The plating photo makes you want to dive right in. One question, do you have the recipe for the rice?
