When you think back to a signature dish at home, what is it? For me, one of those dishes is my dad’s Tandoori Chicken. In our house, we had two head chefs growing up, my mom and my dad. My dad was always at the tandoor and grill experimenting with recipes, feeding us homegrown vegetables and herbs, encouraging us to “play” with our food and relish each moment. Dad’s seem to love the grill and all things associated with it, so we’ve rounded up 7 Tandoor dishes for dad to help you celebrate this Fathers Day.
