Cockerel is what you want to eat if Desi Chicken is not available. Different cities have different names and stuff. 

You are from Nagpur right ? 

From where and for how much do you buy desi and be sure it's not duplicate ? 

I have seen it vary from 320 RS kg to 450 RS kg and sometimes 2000-3000 per chicken (who don't have weighing machines) and I never know what's real inspite of their claims (like see the beak which is whole , feel the body it so tight,look at the claws and color but I don't get the difference)

 

I stopped desi because of not being sure when its expensive and shifted to 180-200 RS cockerel.

Sort of a traditional cheap local fish known as bhunji machli,
Fish are first spread out and completely burnt in dry grass.

Is very unique though, bitter taste and eaten whole as it is sparing the eyes in saoji rasa.

Can't find the English name to check nutritional info compared to other fish.f82b4d0c2f13259c9f2ae0bd8cbe55c9.jpg1b03f374b80c91f5efaa5baedd124a95.jpg

Also they are size of our smaller fingers.

Anchovies are of the same size.

I doubt they are available anywhere else popularly and don't think this is that.

These are Indian Anchovies called Mohurali/Mahurali.

You can easily find them in any local fish market in Delhi, I assume that's the case with most of the areas. People buy them by the lot for frying and eating them whole.

They are very rich in Iron and Zinc especially and taste great.

Thanks, it might be this technique of burning all of it in grass and then sold here which could be unique.

Today's dinner.

 

Don't follow any particular recipe for anything, just keep adding what feels good to the marination and that's what makes this one of the most delightful things you could make with absolutely minimal effort/experience.

 

Tasted sort of between tandoori and pahadi chicken and actually better than both. 3fd90b91c3e0ff7956c7398b1668977b.jpg2b1f063693287946867085e059b31e39.jpg

is that a gas tandoor? or coal tandoor? gonna get one if it is a gas tandoor. my recipe for paneer tikka and chicken tikka is sought after but the magic happens on coal tandoor and i have no time for that and this looks close. 

Yes a Gas tandoor, also has a lid to close from the top, works very well and actually cooks better than coal tandoor as it closes and without the hassle.

 

I never use a fixed recipe for anything,

Just keep tasting and adding stuff.

Maybe place one piece of burning coal on the grill (after removing from gas) for the ending two minutes and close the lid to have that smoky flavour.
