Tandoori Frog Legs

Fusion at its best.  Some may find it sacriledgeous to eat frog legs other than with escargot butter.. or to eat frog legs at all, but I'll eat just about anything I can find, so those who are offended can just kindly look away.  I thought I was completely out of the box when I came up with this idea, but after some research, I realized I will not be able to patent it, unfortunately.  I, however, almost guarantee that mine will taste great and my guests will be surprised.
1 lb frog legs (40-50 pairs)
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 cups beaten plain yogurt
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp grated garlic
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp tandoori masala
1.  Rub the frog legs with lemon juice.  Let it sink in while you make the marinade.
2.  Mix all the marinade ingredients together.  Coat the legs while massaging each one to make sure the marinade coats everybody.  Let marinate in the fridge overnight.
3.  When ready, heat a grill or skillet and cook without overcrowding while wetting with the baste, 1-2 minutes on each side.  I didn't baste.  They were excellent anyway.  I love eating with my hands in fork and knife country.  I love doing it at restaurants too and getting dirty looks from people.  Don't judge me, the french eat their burgers with a fork and a knife and I'm the strange one?

While cooking they will look like ballerinas.  It made me laugh so hard I cried.
