Tandoori-Style Turkey Cutlets
In Indian cuisine, tandoori-style dishes are those that have been baked in a high-heat clay oven called a tandoor. The dishes also traditionally include marinating the food first in a spiced yogurt sauce. A regular Western oven at a high temperature has to substitute for the authentic tandoor, but the marination is the same. If you like spicy food, choose a hot curry powder.
2/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 tablespoon minced ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons paprika
1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 turkey cutlets (4 ounces each)
1/4 cup mango chutney
1 In a shallow baking pan large enough to hold the turkey cutlets in a single layer, stir together 1/3 cup of the yogurt, the ginger, garlic, paprika, curry powder, and salt. Add the turkey cutlets, turning to coat with the mixture. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
2 Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring the turkey, in its marinade, to room temperature. Bake until the turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
3 Lift the turkey from the baking pan and discard the cooked marinade. Serve the turkey with a dollop of chutney and a spoonful of the remaining 1/3 cup yogurt. Makes 4 servings
