A traditional cooking method in Indian cuisine, tandoori is cooking marinated meat or seafood at a very high temperature. This is traditionally done by using a tandoor, a clay oven, but a similar result can be accomplished by grilling. In this recipe, shrimp are marinated in a classic mixture, which includes yogurt and spices such as garam masala, cumin, coriander, and turmeric, as well as herbs like mint and cilantro. The shellfish is then threaded onto skewers and quickly grilled until done.
