  • 2 tablespoons tandoori masala paste
  • 2 teaspoons canned pureed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cayenne pepper, or amount to taste
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
