Tandoori Chicken - Tandoor OvenIn my quest, to bring you more good ideas of not only “how” to eat for gout, but also, “what” to eat for gout to improve your gout diet, my friend Alfie, creator of PaleoDiet4Beginners.com, came to the rescue!  He has taken many of the traditional foods and recipes from his childhood and created Paleo, or more Paleo-like, versions of them and has had great success in improving his own personal health in the process.

Another Great Recipe for Gout!

In this post, Alfie tells us all about how he’s adapted his Grandmothers Tandoori Chicken recipe to make it fit into a more Paleo Diet style.

In case you don’t know what Tandoori is, (I didn’t!) I did a quick search and got the low down from About.com – to paraphrase:

  • A tandoor is a traditional Indian clay oven in which an intense, hot fire is built. Tandoori is simply marinated meat that is cooked in that intense fire.

Tandoori Chicken?

Tandoori Chicken hails from the Indian subcontinent but is an extremely popular dish all over the world. It is a beautiful dish that consists of roasted chicken prepared with yoghurt and spices, traditionally cooked in a clay oven called a Tandoor.

Tandoori chicken is the base dish that gave rise to popular derivatives such as Chicken Tikka and Chicken Tikka Masala!

Memories of Tandoori Chicken

My grandmother (god bless her soul) made the best tandoori chicken (although I never let my mother know, she will probably read this and find out!) and that is because she had an actual Tandoor clay oven in her house, built long ago!

I remember the dish being on the dry side, but so absolutely amazing! I loved the way the curried yoghurt paste married with the spices and the chicken. (see my recipe for details) Simply amazing…

My Paleo Tandoori Chicken

My love for Indian food has seen me fall off the Paleo bandwagon numerous times, but last year I made a solid, conscious decision not to fight Indian food I love so much, but to make it work.

Tandoori Chicken is one of those dishes. You don’t have to give it up just because it uses yogurt and other non Paleo foods.
Just some simple substitutions will allow you to still enjoy dishes like this and best of all, it will be a healthier and cleaner version as well.
