Curries come in many varieties but they all have one thing in common: a whole lot of flavorful spices. Explore the world of curries with this set that will let you taste your way through seven different types. Our three Spice 'n Easy curries come together in no time whether you're in the mood for creamy Tikka Masala, bright Lemongrass Panang, or sweet-spiced Massaman.
Zanzibar Curry Powder is inspired by the flavors of the island by the same name off the eastern coast of Africa, while Garam Masala is a traditional Indian blend. Tandoori Seasoning is also inspired by India and its tradition of cooking in clay tandoor ovens, and the brightly colored Mild Yellow Curry is a popular addition to everything from rice and soup to veggie dishes.

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
Metal or Bamboo Skewers*
1/2 cup plain yogurt, at room temperature
2 Tbsp. Tandoori Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt, divided
1/4 cup melted ghee or butter*
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
In a gallon-size zip top bag, combine Tandoori, 1/2 tsp. of the salt, ghee, lemon and orange juice, and vinegar. Add chicken pieces and refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours (longer is better.) Remove chicken from marinade; reserve remaining marinade to make the sauce. Skewer chicken pieces in an ‘S’ shape, 2 to 3 per skewer, and set aside. Preheat grill or broiler and as it heats, pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until marinade thickens to the point where it coats the back of a wooden spoon. While sauce reduces, grill chicken over high heat until it is cooked through. To finish the sauce, reduce heat to low and whisk in yogurt until smooth. Cover and simmer for 7 to 10 min., stirring occasionally. Season with remaining salt to taste.
*Ghee will give the dish the most depth of flavor (visit savoryspiceshop.com to learn how to make your own ghee). If using bamboo skewers, soak for at least half an hour to prevent them from burning on the grill.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve skewers over rice, topped with sauce, and fresh cilantro. For a fresh, summery flavor, mix in diced tomatoes and/or cucumbers into the sauce.
YIELDS: 4 servings
