If you've got a foodie family that won't scoff at anything other than white-meat roast turkey, gravy and mashed potaters, let us suggest this exotic Thanksgiving option. For the 16th year, Irvine's Clay Oven Cuisine of India is selling its famed tandoori turkey. It's available now for pre-order and will be ready to pick up on T-Day.
For $69.95, you get a whole bird that's marinated in herbs and spices, cooked in a traditional Indian barrel-shaped oven (the high heat keeps it super juicy) and stuffed with spice-infused basmati race. Cranberry chutney is served on the side.
The intoxicating dish feeds at least six. Call the restaurant at (949) 552-2851 by Nov. 19 to place your order.
Now how about some pani puri to munch on during the football game?
