Indian Curry Yogurt Marinade

Great on lamb, great on chicken, great on salmon. The yogurt acts as a tenderizer for the meat, and provides a rich, cooling counterpoint to the rich spices. Basmati rice is great with this. Lamb and chicken should marinate from 4 to 12 hours in the fridge, salmon for 1 hour. Cilantro haters should feel free to use parsley.
