What’s for Dinner: Mom’s Curry Yogurt Marinade

This marinade give chicken or turkey for curry that extra depth of flavor that you usually only find in an authentic Indian restaurant. This make enough for about 1-2 pounds of meat. It also freezes well so you can make extra & store it in a gallon zippered freezer bag. When you are ready to use just take it out of the freezer, let it thaw then add the meat right into the bag to marinade. It can also be used for FodMap diets because you don’t actually eat the ingredients, the meat just absorbs their flavor!

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp curry powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 yellow onion  or 2-3 green “Florida onions”; chopped

2 cloves roasted garlic crushed

1 1/4 cups plain yogurt

juice of 2 lemons

5 Tbsp olive oil

5 Tbsp tomato paste

2 Tbsp white or red wine vinegar

2 Tbsp dark brown sugar

2 tsp ground ginger (or fresh grated if you have it)

salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in large bowl then pour over poultry in a large zippered gallon bag & let marinate for  2 hours up-to over night.
