   In India, meat that has been marinated in a mixture of
   yogurt and spices is roasted in a giant urn-shaped
   clay oven called a tandoor. Use this marinade with
   poultry, lamb or seafood
   
   Drain yogurt in a cheesecloth lined colander in the
   refrig- erator for 2 hours. Reserve the liquid for
   another use (baking or sauces).
   
   Place the drained yogurt in a bowl and stir in the
   remaining ingredients. Discard bay leaves before
   cooking.
   
   Makes 1 3/4 cups.
