Using soured milk for marinating chicken is popular not only in the South, where it’s often soaked in buttermilk before making fried chicken, but also in India, where cooks create a spicy yogurt marinade before cooking meat in the tandoori oven. Inspired by that intersection of food, I marinated chicken tenders in a spicy curried buttermilk. To complete the salad, I used okra, a vegetable that’s popular in both the South and India, and is absolutely delicious grilled.
This salad is great with a white wine that has both body and acid. I opted for a fruity French Chenin Blanc.
