We miss Tandoori food a lot in Germany - apart from the very few good Indian / Pakistani / Bangladeshi restaurants, there is not too much choice.
Making tandoori food at home is difficult for the simple reason that a tandoor is missing. So I tried to recreate a tandoori recipe using the omnipresent oven - and it turned out pretty well.
I tried out a filling of leftover mixed vegetables, but feel free to substitute with fresh ones - or any other filling which takes your fancy.
Beware - this recipe is rather time consuming. But the end result is worth the effort!
