  1. Hi RK,

    yes, regular Tandoori masala should work fine; I myself use Shaan BBQ masala most of the times, without compromising on the taste or the color!:)

  2. Tandoori aloo looks great. Do you know if store bought tandoori masala will yield such good results or is it best to make the masala fresh at home since Mr. Huda's is not available in the US? Pls comment, thanks.
