BARBECUE RECIPES



The barbecue recipes presented here help you to host an Indian summer barbecue party without much effort. The great thing about these barbecue recipes is that they're no more complicated. There's nothing like low-cooked Indian tandoori or barbecue recipes. They are simply delicious.

Tandoori cooking does not use much oil or ghee and therefore can be used when pursuing a low calorie diet. A tandoor is a clay oven, with rounded sides, with charcoal in the bottom as the heat source. The intense heat inside, created by the hot coals cook the meat, seafood or chicken pieces very quickly.Some households in India have started to install a tandoori oven in their backyard.

In the oven, food becomes crispy on the outside while remaining juicy inside. The food is first marinated in spices and yogurt mixture and is then threaded onto very long metal skewers and lowered into the oven. Naan, and Indian flat bread is also cooked in a tandoor oven by pressing the dough onto the inside walls. Probably the most famous recipe from the Tandoor is the Indian Tandoori Chicken. The skinned whole chicken is rubbed with salt and lime and marinated for at least six hours in a mixture of yogurt and a masala, which is a mixture of select spices of Indian origin. The masala usually contains ginger, garlic, chillies, cardamom, cloves, pepper,saffron,etc.
