Everything from veggies , to non-veggies , to fruits taste exceptional when cooked on a grill.
But I've been so busy marinating, grilling and eating, that I never took any much decent snaps to share all that I've been cooking or let's say 'grilling' up :-) But I'll share the few that I did take.
We inaugurated our grill, with yummy Tandoori chicken legs, the same evening we bought the grill :-) I shall post recipe soon. Heres a peek at how they turned up (the pics aren't a beauty I must say).
But it tasted beyond YUMMY and even lil'M ate almost a whole chicken leg , well thats something. And need I say about Manish ;-)
Here's while they were on the grill...mmmm that char is actually carmelised sugar...slightly crunchy, sweet n oh-so juicy!!
On to my Chicken Satay kebabs. I'm sure this marination would go well with Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese), Mushrooms , even Fish, should give all this a try :-)I did not have all the exact ingredients as in the original recipe, so I've adapted it to my ingredient availability. Got this recipe from Manu's blog Manu's Menu and I want to thank her for this exceptional recipe.
I also made the peanut sauce , but lets me be honest to say that I was more interested in the chicken and din't do full justice to the peanut sauce recipe. :-)

Grilled Chicken Satay Kebabs Recipe
Skinless Chicken Breasts - 4 (cut into cubes)
Shallots - 6
Garlic cloves - 2
Vegetable oil - 4 tblsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 2 tblsp
Soy sauce - 4 tsp
Bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 2 hours so they do not burn) - I used 4
1. Cut the chicken into small cubes.
2. Grind all the other ingredients in a food processor, adding a little water if needed. Pour this mixture onto the chicken cubes and marinate it overnight.
3. Skewer the chicken cubes and grill them for 2-3 minutes on each side, until it looks well cooked and charred slightly.
Suggestions:1. Its best when served with some chutney or sauce. Peanut sauce being a popular option.
2. Corriander-Mint chutney mixed with a little yogurt is also a good accompaniment. Check out my recipe for green chutney here.
3. Use up any leftovers for a yummy sandwhich or add it to a simple salad.
I'm gonna be doing a lot more experiments with my grill, so cook along , lets eat and be merry!! :-)
