Indian food on a barbeque

Thursday, August 5th, 2010
You can make tandoori chicken and cook it over a barbeque. You could also try chicken tikka pieces!

Chicken Tikka Recipe:
fresh ginger and garlic (about 1 oz each - or just a big spoonful of ready pureed stuff from a jar)
4 chillies (or less, or more)
180 ml plain natural yoghurt. Low fat is fine.
2 tsp soy sauce.
1 tsp salt.
2 tsp tomato puree
1 tsp tumeric powder
1 tsp chili powder (optional if you don't like hot food!)
dash of red food colouring (optional)
15 ml lemon juice
675g of chicken pieces.

Mix all incredients. Liquidize together to make a smooth paste. Chop chicken into nice bite size pieces. Put into marinade - but reserve a little of this mixture - and leave in the fridge at least 8 hours.
Put chicken pieces onto squewers and put on barbeque. Turn often and add a little extra marinade to them as you cook them. Cook until the chicken is well done.
Serve hot with salad!
Use different meats like lamb or beef.
Tandoori Chicken
Use thighs for this - between 1-2 per person
150ml of plain yoghurt (again low fat is fine)
Equal parts of crushed ginger and garlic. About 2 big tablespoons full of each.
5 tsp of tandoori powder
1 tsp chili
1 tsp oil
Pinch of salt.

Mix ingredients to form paste and rub into chicken. Leave a coupe of hours or possibly overnight.
Grill on barbeque. Or cook in over for about 40-50 minutes and then finish on the barbeque.


Bread with your barbeque?

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010
When you're having a barbeque you might want to go the whole hog and make your own bread to go with your delicious barbeque treats! Have you ever made your own bread? It's easier than you'd think and it smells so good cooking that you'll want to capture the smell and save it! Nothing beats warm fresh bread! So why not try making some yourself?

The Ingredients….
Poilane use 7 basic ingredients to make their different varieties of bread. Each have been carefully selected to respect tradition and to ensure Poilane’s unique flavour:

1) Wheat Flour: From near-organic farming, their wheat is exclusively stone ground.
2) Leaven: This is the crux of the method used to make Poilane breads. The leaven comes from a starter reserved from the previous batch.
3) Rye Flour: Cultivated in the central region of France, their rye flour is 100% wholemeal.
4) Water: Nothing special, just tap water which they analyse once a year.
5) Sea Sat: From the Atlantic coast.
6) Raisins: Dried in the beautiful Greek sun.
7) Walnuts: Sourced from Perigord in France.

The Method….
Poilane bread is leavened bread, created using an ancient fermenting technique, discovered about five or six thousand years ago. Legend has it, the lady who discovered it had forgotten to bake her dough so she cooked it some time later and found to her delight a lighter, tastier result! So sometimes forgetfulness is a good thing!

A portion of the previous batch of dough is preserved to “start” the next batch – a leaven. Mixed with flour, water, sea salt and plenty of tender loving care, this natural starter means that no yeast is needed. This gives Poilane breads a greater resistance to mould without the need for nasty additives.

Baking
After weighing, shaping and making sure everything is perfect (by hand!), each Poilane baker gently pops their loaves in a wood-heated brick oven. They even make sure to use only recycled wood.

Try it for yourself!
So, now you know exactly how it was made, try some of Poilane’s fantastic bread for yourself. Choose from the basic sourdough loaves through to moreish walnut bread and super healthy rye loaves. Click here to explore the full range.
