This lockdown has come with its own set of benefits, besides keeping us safe. The biggest one among them is ‘quarantining’ with our family and the opportunity to spend quality time with them. During the lockdown, mostly everyone is missing the spicy, tangy, fried, and grilled food from restaurants. Wondering how to make their meals interesting at home? Why not host a Barbeque Night Dinner at home with these three easy to make recipes by our very own chef Pankaj Bhadoria?
First in line in our menu is a ‘Grilled Root Vegetables’ recipe. A perfect starter for your party, all these dish needs for ingredients are root vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, and beetroots. Begin with slicing the vegetables in thin circular strips or shapes of your choice. Marinate the slices with olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and thyme and keep aside for 15 minutes. In this duration, you can heat up your grill. After 15 minutes, put the marinated vegetables on the hot grill and watch the Barbeque. To add a little more flavour, brush some melted butter on them, and turn them upside down safely. Once the vegetables show those beautiful golden grill marks, you know it’s time to serve your starter.
Once you’ve sorted the starters, it’s time to move onto the main course- Chicken Burger. For all your young kids and teenagers who are in love with burgers, this is a good opportunity to show them that home-made chicken burgers are equally good! Begin with sautéing chopped onions, garlic, tomatoes, mushroom, and carrots. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together minced chicken, bell peppers, cheese, and fried vegetables. Dress them up with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and with other spices of your choice and mix it well. Once done, dampen your palms and start making the chicken patty. Once ready, grill fry the patties followed by the buns. Your burger is now ready to be decorated as you like!
When your starter and the main course is a barbecued dish, why should your dessert be left out? Presenting, Grilled Fruit Skewers, a healthy and delicious grilled dessert. The dessert is as easy to prepare as it sounds. Simply add freshly cut fruits to the skewers and coat them with honey, lemon, and paprika paste. After coating it well, but the fruits on the grill and turn when grill marks appear. Note to take the fruits off the grill soon, as fruits take less time to cook. Make this last dessert a cherry on the topping on your scrumptious Barbeque night’s menu.
