As someone who married into an Indian family, I love my "masala dubba" or "spice box." Indian cuisine draws on subtle blends of many spices, so it's handy to have all of them in this one tin with little cups, like a palette!

This recipe is so easy and so healthy -- if you want to spice it up for adults, you can add cayenne to the yoghurt marinade.
