This recipe was adapted from "Clean: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself" (HarperOne, 2009). It makes two servings -- you can share with a friend, keep one portion for the next day, or halve the recipe.
A tandoor clay oven grills and roasts at the same time, but you can get a similar effect by broiling. Chicken wings are ideal for this technique: The meat is protected by a garam masala-spiced yogurt marinade, and the wing tips get crisp. Glaze the wings with store-bought mango chutney after cooking. The versatile spice blend called garam masala is available at most supermarkets and at kalustyans.com.
You will only need half the recipe for the cheesecake; use the remaining dough to make cookie cutouts (see variation) or reserve it for another use; it will freeze up to one month. To make a honey gingerbread variation (as pictured on top of the cheesecake), replace 1/2 cup of the molasses with 1/2 cup honey, and substitute granulated sugar for the brown sugar.
