My son is a vegetarian from birth but my husband keeps trying to make him eat some non veg in any form. After 5-6 years of struggle, one day both me and my husband noticed that my son loves to eat the charred chicken that tastes crisp and delicious. So we identified that if we serve him something that is flavorful or what we call in Hindi as ‘Chatpata’ and which is not that fleshy but crisp then he enjoys it. So we took him to barbecue nation and asked him to try some tandoori chicken tikka….and to our surprise , my boy finished them all in no time. That was a real ice breaking moment for all of us. Ever since he had the barbecued chicken, he is now a big fan of tandoori and keeps asking me to make the same at home. Also to mention, he makes sure he is being served the exact flavor and texture, so we now often set up the barbecue in our lawn and enjoy our BBQ parties.
But WAIT!!!! What if you don’t have a BBQ set up at home? No worries at all, super mom has a solution for everything here. Try making this stove top grilled and smoked tandoori chicken and surprise your loved ones with your cooking techniques and skills.
