I stumbled upon the idea of Tandoori Garlic Bread Recipe by chance. I have always been a big fan of the Dominos garlic bread. During these tough lockdown times, I got thinking about how I can recreate something similar at home but in a healthy format.

After my mum perfected the healthy pizza bread, we decided to take it up another level to garlic bread. The garlic bread turned out to be out of the world and I really wanted to fuse it to another of my favourite delicacy. The Tandoori Masala from Ashok Masala had been lying in my fridge since eons because I had always used it to make non vegetarian food back in Japan. I never knew how to use it with vegetarian food, well, until now. I got thinking of Tandoori momos and decided to put the classic masala to use in a fusion food.

This Tandoori Garlic Bread recipe is my original and I realized there was just no way to go wrong with this one. The best part about this Tandoori Garlic Bread Recipe is that there is no use of oil, baking soda, baking powder, yeast, maida / white flour and preservative contained ingredient. I tried my best to reduced the use of packaged products and its almost healthy. You wont even need a Tandoor but just my favourite Tandoori Masala from Ashok Masala.

Long story short, the home made bread is is stuffed with garlic and cooked tandoori masala in almost no actual cooking time at all. Just made sure to start three-four hours earlier and try to keep yourself from tasting the masala. Its apt for a newbie to any pro and promises to get taste buds wanting for more. Go, go, go, check this out right away!
