Use store-brought tandoori curry paste for more than just curries - add to meatloaf, mix with yoghurt and spread on a leg of lamb for roast. Add to mince and easily lift the family burger beyond the realm of buns, lettuce, beatroot and the ubiquitous tomato sauce to the tantalising aromas and taste of India.
