Grilling is one of our favorites things to do during summertime.Hubby loves to bbq and he doesnt let me come near it.He says its a man's domain , I dont agree to that one bit but i really do enjoy seeing him grill :).
Grilling is very healthy and gives a nice smoky flavor to the meat.In order to get good grill marks on the meat preheat the grill for sometime.You should hear a nice sizzling sound when u drop the meat on it. Then cook it on medium high heat for few mins turning the meat just ones.
One can even grill vegetables like eggplant,bell peppers,paneer,zucchini etc.
We use the gas grill.Its much easier to use and maintain.I also love charcoal grill but requires a lot more work and clean up.
This is my post on day 27 of RM 2.
Boneless chicken breasts - 2 large,cut to medium size pieces
Gin-gar paste - 2 tsp
turmeric - 1/2 tsp
red chilli pdr - 1 1/2 tsp
coriander pdr - 1 1/2 tbsp
cumin pdr - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
lemon juice - 2 tsp
amchur pdr - 1/2 tsp
curd - 1/2 cup
salt and pepper
In a bowl mix all the ingredients needed for marination.Add the chicken pieces in it and mix it well.Let it marinate for 4-5 hrs at least.
Preheat the grill on medium high heat.To check if its ready sprinkle some water on it and if it sizzles then its ready.Place the chicken pieces one by one without overlapping each other.Leave it undisturbed.Close the lid and let it cook for about 5-6 mins.Turn it and let it cook the other side for 3-4 mins.Then reduce the heat to medium low and let it cook for another 2-3 mins or until done.To check if the meat is done pierce with a fork,if it pierces easily then its done.The last thing you want to do is overcook cause that simply makes it tough and dry.Serve immediately alongside sliced onions and lemon wedges.
