Pan Fried Chicken Thigh with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Chips

Hi Friends,

Now that summers will be here and infact afternoons are much warmer, the time is coming back for Beer binging!!! Isn't it? LOL.

But yeah, if you also have some awesome food to go with it which is not just a snack but also a wholesome meal, there could be nothing better! But what you really want is something easy and light. I usually make something like this usually when I want to have a non-Indian meal which is not spicy but just simply flavourful and typically English!

So, it is simply a chicken thigh first pan friend and then cooked a bit in oven served with silky smooth mashed potatoes and Lays chips which can be substituted with fries.

Chicken Seekh Kebab

Chicken Seekh Kebab recipe or How to make chicken Seekh Kebab at home

Hey Lovely People!!

How are you doing?

Well, when I started cooking, I tried my hand at the cliche dishes which were loved by all and trust me Seekh Kebabs were the favourites. The ones I tried were so easy to make that I was surprised and shocked but yet they were delicious and you did not need the Barbeque or Tandoor or Oven to make them.

Pot Roast With Amazing Creamy Sauce

Pot Roasted Chicken Recipe

At times all you want to do is do a 'roast' like AIB. LOL. No, at home you can only roast your chicken and not Ranbir or Arjun. But the thing is, you can eat your chicken the way you want.

Now this was one night when few people had come for dinner and my microwave ditched me by going kaput at the last moment when I was about to roast my chicken. I had it all ready, marinated whole chicken ready to go under the heat.

And then I improvised and how!!! As they, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.

Take a look at these pics, they will tell you how good it came, the chicken was done wonderfully and sauce was the star!!!

Sauteed Chicken with Honey Vinegar Sauce

Hi Friends,

Today what I am going to share with you is one of the first European style dish that I tried.

Sauteed Chicken with Honey Vinegar Sauce.

After this I knew that this kind of cuisine is so simple and easy to make. So, its a very simple dish and as European dishes are, its non spicy, something that most people would love. Its simple sauteed chicken breasts with a sweet Honey and Vinegar Sauce.

Barbeque Chicken Legs - The Juicy and Tender Treat

Barbeque Chicken or Barbeque Chicken Recipe

Its been a while I have written a new post but here I am. Have been quite busy with my nephews and nieces visiting and weekends have been busy. Though I tried something new last week and now sharing it with you.

I have been making those curry dishes now for a while and wanted to try out some snacks that you could have with your pint of beer (it's so hot as you know), so I decided to try out my favorite barbeque kind of thing. Well, I have done tandoori chicken earlier but this time it had to be something American style. Yeah, the Barbeque Chicken Legs which actually turned out to be as beautiful as delicious they were.
Barbeque Chicken
Barbeque Chicken Legs - So Juicy!

To be honest, it is such a simple recipe that anyone can make it but don't take its execution for granted because you would have to use 2 modes in our Microwave (you need to have Convection and Grill modes for this recipe) or if you have a charcoal grill (I am so much desperate to buy it this winter), nothing better.

I have eaten this dish many times when I have gone out and really love the mild sweet taste it gives even though I have a spicy tooth!!! And this dish is not spicy so even kids would enjoy it.

So let me start:-


  1. Chicken Legs (10 pcs)
  2. Mixed Herbs
  3. Salt
  4. Barbeque Sauce - This is what makes it sweet and gives that color and coating!
  5. Olive Oil/Vegetable Oil to coat the chicken legs (depending upon availability. I used already used oil and it came out good)

Cream Chicken - Delight for people who can't handle Spicy stuff

I know its been a long time since my last post. Just that I have been busy on weekends and haven't had the chance to really cook. But yeah last weekend was a perfect opportunity to cook something new which was very easy yet challenging. Easy, because the recipe is so simple, challenging because I always cook spicy stuff but this time the guest for Saturday dinner just cannot eat spicy food and I had to cook something mild. And their visit for long due and I had always promised for  good non veg meal. So I took it upon myself to cook Cream Chicken.

Cream Chicken
The delicious rich Cream Chicken
Now, its white gravy with Kasuri Methi and ground black pepper for texture, the chicken comes out so tender and immersed in rich thick gravy of cream and yogurt. When I was eating it, it just felt like wanting to have a chilled beer and eat it as appetizer. Yeah, you can eat it as appetizer because of thick gravy. In Delhi yeah we call this type of gravy as 'Lit-pita' which basically means not too dry yet no thin gravy.

Well, I actually couldn't thoroughly savor the taste of chicken as I also tried what my wife had cooked, paneer with capsicum and dal makhani. But the guests just went gaga over Chicken and its normal for my wife to tell me that my cooking always overshadows her's. Well mind you, she cooks really well too!

Now let me tell you, this dish is generally non-spicy like all white gravy dishes are, however you can add little more black pepper to spice things up. And yeah best to have this dish with parantha, believe me, it would be amazing experience! It actually reminded me of chicken that my wife bakes in oven which is also white gravy made with cheese and some stuff (I did not ask her the recipe). I keep telling her to make that baked chicken dish but she is so lazy in cooking non-veg! LOLS!

Ajwaini Murg Recipe

Ajwaini Murg Recipe Or Tangri Kebab Recipe

Well, I love the dry form of chicken as much as I love curries. But I cook this dish mostly because my wife love chicken and more so in dry form than in curry. Best part is, it’s very simple. And then there are 2 ways to cook it, either in pan or in oven.  I prefer the pan version because it’s not entirely dry but with some ‘gravy-ish’ masala, you know the juices of chicken with all spices that you use in marinade will be there.

Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken or Tandoori Chicken Recipe

So, many of my friends have asked me the recipe of Tandoori Chicken and how to get that 'Grilled Look', you know to make it look like its not home-made!

Well, to all my food maniacs, here is the recipe!

Tandoori Chicken
Tandoori Chicken

Preparation Time: 4-6 Hours

Cooking time: 45 minutes


First and Foremost, you will need the strong desire of a juicy outcome!

  1. 1 Whole chicken (about 800 gms)
  2. Salt
  3. Red Chilli Powder (preferably Kashmiri chili powder as it adds less spice and more color)
  4. Garam Masala
  5. Ginger-Garlic Paste
  6. Hung Yogurt (Hang curd in a muslin cloth for 2 hours to drain out the water. It will give you a dough like yogurt)
  7. Black Pepper powder
  8. Lemon Juice
  9. Mustard Oil. This is typical to Tandoori chicken.

Tandoori Chicken - King of the Grill

Now, for many North Indian (doesn't matter whether they are living in Delhi or Yorkshire), the ever delicious bite of 'Tandoori chicken' just can't be beat! Nothing different with me. I always had this fascination of having chicken (now I prefer mutton) made me ask, how they cook it? It was just my interest and taste buds for this dish that made me cook it in home microwave oven.

So, last weekend I told my wife that I am gonna roast a whole chicken and by seeing that twinkle in her eye just at the prospect of digging into some chicken made me even more determined to cook it really nice. I was not going to lose a chance to impress her! See this Tandoori Chicken Recipe which I made.

The Juicy and Tempting 'Tandoori Chicken'

Now for this dish, preparation is 75% of cooking! Because it takes hell lot of time just to prepare to start cooking! 1st marinade, 2nd marinade, wait for 4 hrs. And yeah...before all that marinade, slicing the whole chicken at the right places! But yeah, nothing looks hard or difficult when you enjoy doing it!

Voila! the whole chicken lying beautifully on his back, coming out of oven all grilled and rusty color! It just looked so tempting! It was so mushy, juicy and waiting to be explored! And you have to eat it to believe me when I say it was such an arousing experience! It felt like an act of love! :P
