Non-vegetarian food in India (or Indian Cuisine) is incomplete with out Biryani. Biryani can be from Awadh, Hyderabad, or Delhi, and based on its location, there would be somewhat variations. I have seen biryani served in normal Indian takeaways or restaurants in UK, and I won’t call it biryani, its just pieces of chicken/ lamb/ prawn tossed in rice and some curry added on top. To explore the true taste, you need to go to the roots and discover real meaning of biryani where rice is cooked in layers of meat, along with spices on a low heat by sealing the lid, that’s what I call “Dum Biryani”.
If you are a seafood lover, chances are that you will like prawns too and if you like prawns that its given that you will relish this ginger garlic based prawn curry, which is really easy to cook. Recently my partner bought prawns to cook at home (he loves king / tiger prawns) and asked me to suggest a recipe. He had recently made Prawn Skewers and this time he said he want to make some gravy based thing. I had been having a few busy weeks and hence I suggested this easy to cook recipe of “ginger garlic prawn curry” for him to try.
If you love sea food, chances are high that you will love prawns too. Prawns have a distinct taste and fabulous source of protein. Though I am a vegetarian, I love seeing my partner enjoy his food, and he loves his non-veg. This makes me give all sort of suggestion to my partner to try out various non-vegetarian recipes. It seems his Prawn capsicum recipe was hit between his friends and hence I suggested this time that he tries out prawn skewers. This recipe does not require oven, but if you wish you can use oven (check recipe notes at the bottom of this recipe).
Your quest for this Indo-Chinese style chicken appetiser ends here with this semi dry chilli chicken. This dish is widely available across the length and breadth of India, however trick lies in making this chilli chicken as you will find in finest restaurants. Mostly this is made with bone less chicken, some prefer using small portions of chicken with bone too. I am sharing here in detail step by step recipe of boneless chilli chicken. Vegetarian alternates are made with paneer, potato, mushroom and tofu.
Secret of a chicken recipe is in its marination, this Angara Tangdi Chicken or Fiery Chicken Leg recipe of mine is simple however it yields scrumptious chicken, which a chicken lover will never be able to say No. It is absolutely necessary that the marination goes into the core of chicken so that after you have cooked and bite is taken, taste oozes from depth of chicken in each bite. As they say there is science in everything, same applies to cooking. It is the combination of spices which gels so well with raw chicken when kept for hours to yield the mouth watering taste.
When you can make restaurant style Tandoori Chicken yourself, why you need takeaway? The key to this recipe is marination. Marinade this chicken over night and enjoy the flavour in the depth of this tender chicken. Tandoori chicken is one of the world famous tandoori recipe which has its roots from the Mughalai cuisine.
Ideally you need a Tandoor to prepare this, but I have made this in Oven, and this is what my recipe is, to make tandoori chicken in an oven, in the comfort of your home. I have served this Tandoori Chicken multiple times and have been a huge hit between my guests. Sharing my “step by step recipe of tandoori chicken” below, give it a go and you will forget the takeaways.
