    I suspect those are skewers and hooks. A hook is used to remove naan from the walls of a tandoor, and many  of the meats are done skewered.

    What a unique gift, now that is something I wouldn't mind getting. Did it come with a recipe book ? What will be your first project ?

    Petals.

    ps should I bring the wine ? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Nah no need recipe book.  I actually know how to use one.  :)  First things will be boti kebab, tandoori chicken, and some breads.

    Yeah I am lucky.  So lucky.

    So what do you use for your tandoori marinade? The ones I've made from scratch have not been as good as those I've bought as a paste at an Indian grocer and then mixed with yogurt and such.   It bothers me that scratch has failed me in this regard.

    Wow Hatch, I don't know exactly.  Paprika, coriander, some cumin, ginger, touch of cinammon, cayenne.  Lightly salt the meat, sprinkle the spice mix all over, add couple dollops of yogurt, mix up, allow to sit for about couple hours.

    Show us some more! I want to see some action and finished shots!

    I'm very jealous of your tandoor, I admit it.

    I have had the same experience. The lack of red color doesn't help, I'm sure. But the stuff I made was nowhere near as flavorful as the Patak's I buy from the store. I consequently bought a 6 pack of the Patak's stuff and gave up on trying to make my own. I'll have to try again though!
