    Oh, if anyone else reads this recipe fresh coriander is called "cilantro" in most of the United States.... that's what I knew it as here in California =)

    I have been trying to figure this out on my own since yesterday morning. I have all ingredients for this except the "Tandoori pepper mix." is this a product I buy premixed? Is it just cayenne and red peppers? Please help, I'm trying to fix this for dinner and google searches have not helped!
