Tandoori Aloo (potatoes Grilled In Tandoori Spices)

Tandoori aloo is an easy starter with cooked potatoes marinated in the tandoori masala. I cooked mine over my barbecue grill but you can use your microwave or oven for grilling the potatoes. I am not sure of grilling this on a pan. Whenever we have leftovers of this aloo I stuff it with some tomatoes, onion and ketchup into a roti or bread.
