i love, but get so burned out on, regular barbeque sauce. this recipe [thrown together, not sure you could call it a ‘recipe’] combines some indian flavors with thai flavors and is really good and totally easy.

trim as much membrane and fat off of two or three racks of ribs. put in a roasting pan with sliced ginger and lemons and about an inch of water and bake them at 350 for about 45 minutes. meanwhile, make the sauce…

in a blender or food processor combine:

i jar of masala sauce [i get mine at trader joes, although you could make your own]
1/2 can of coconut milk
1T tamarind paste
about 2 inches of ginger root peeled and diced
lemon juice
1T worcheshire  sauce
salt and pepper to taste
puree until smooth 

when the ribs are done, smother them with the sauce and let them marinate for a while, refrigerated. grill slowly on low heat, basting with the sauce until they are all brown and gooey. garnish with a chiffonade of basil. great with grilled white corn, marinated green bean salad and sliced cucumber. make a dip for meat and cukes out of plain yogurt, chopped garlic, chopped parsley, grated nutmeg, salt and pepper.
