Can marinate chicken in yogurt instead of buttermilk?
- digkv Dec 3, 2007 08:11 PM
I don't have any buttermilk right now but I do have a lot of low fat yogurt. Could I use this to marinate the chicken (that I'm going to fry tomorrow)? Would it me as effective as buttermilk will be? Does anyone have any suggestions as what to add to make it more flavorful or should I leave it plain? Thanks
how about make it tandoori style ?
cumin,coriander powder,turmeric,cayenne +grated ginger,chopped parsley,chopped cilantro.
salt & pepper. if you have lime, lime juice,too.
all mix in to yogurt .
I think these spices are basic.you can add more or less,I guess.
I add paprika( regular or smoked) ,fresh mint sometimes.
It is very simple but pretty tasty.
This sounds great, just drain off the next day and dredge in seasoned flour before frying.
I would rub the mix into the chicken before adding the yogurt, then marinate. Good luck!
If you are looking for a more straight up approach to fried chicken, seasoned chicken pieces in yogurt overnight would be tasty too, even in just salt and pepper.
