For 4 people
400 g seitan
250 g soy yogurt
1 shallot, finely chopped
4 tablespoons Tandoori Masala Indian spices
6 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon ginger, finely chopped
1 pinch of cayenne pepper


Tandoori cuisine is part of the Indian tradition and is characterized by cooking in typical terracotta kilns, which we can replace with our electric ovens, although clearly it is not the same thing!
For this type of preparation it is also used a spice mixture called "Tandoori Masala", one of many that characterize the Indian cuisine.

After having finely chopped the shallot and ginger, pour the yogurt in a bowl and add the Tandoori Masala spice mixture, lemon juice, chopped shallot and ginger, a pinch of cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt, then mix everything thoroughly.

Reduce the seitan in chunks, place it on a baking sheet and cover with the spiced yogurt that you have just prepared, then store it to marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight, covered with plastic wrap.

After the interval of marinating, pull the seitan from refrigerator.

Remove the foil and mix evenly the seitan with its marinade sauce.

At this point your seitan is ready for baking: place it in a hot oven at 180° C for about 20 minutes until the seitan will a nice golden color. Stir the seitan chunks halfway through cooking so that they cook evenly.

Once cooked, serve hot with Basmati rice and vegetables: this dish will take you to exotic places and far away...
