13.1.2008 Bloodred, Tandoori owen creation

One day I make this wery simple Tandoori-tofu thing.
I putt it some carlig, minced fresh ginger, spices:tandoori-masala spise mix, pepper, coriander(also fresh!!), lime juice,parsley, balck pepper,cinnamon and little dash of sweet and sour-sauce from a bottle. Then I sauteed some red-onions with those spices, adding one can of tomato puree and tofus,zucchinis, carrots and 2 red peppers+1 yellow pepper. I leave that infusing for about an hour and finally added some salt and fresh herbs.
It was really good,simple, smooth and spicy!

It contains coriander,salt,fenugreek,cumin,cinnamon,chillies,black pepper,ginger,onion,garlic,mustard,bay leaves,nutmeg,cloves,mace,cardamons and some food colourings(I checked there is no any animal-by products in those colourings,altough there is also some red colourings used).

thanks :)
I bought some anatto (the red colouring used for tandoori) some weeks ago and am looking for ways to use it.

If you'd like to receive some goodies (especially Japanese), we could do a package swap maybe?

That looks incredible and sounds pretty easy to make. What is carlig?

Mmm sounds like a winning recipe... and I love how the photo is dark except for the bright red hue of the tofu-- it looks stellar :o).

Rural vegan: "carlig" is my writing mistake ;) Im not really good writing eglish,as you can see!
Garlic is correct.

I've never heard of carlig. Sounds interesting. I like the idea of it being 'blood red'. :)
