The Connoisseur's Guide to Regional Indian Barbecue Recipes

India, a land of vibrant spices and culinary diversity, offers a remarkable world of regional Indian barbecue traditions. From the smoky tandoori flavors of the North to the fiery coastal grills of the South, there’s an Indian barbecue experience for every palate. BraaiCraft, with its exceptional smokers, grills, firepits, and asado grills, opens a world of possibilities to elevate your Indian barbecue experience. Let’s explore how to use these innovative BraaiCraft products to unlock the authentic flavors of India’s diverse barbecue heritage.

The North: Tandoori Delights and Smoked Wonders

The North of India is synonymous with the iconic tandoor – a clay oven that imparts a unique smoky char.

  • Tandoori Chicken with the BraaiCraft’s Bunker: This classic dish gets a flavor boost with the Bunker smoker. Marinate chicken in a yoghurt-based spice mix, and let the Bunker’s slow-smoking magic create a tender, smoky masterpiece.
  • Seekh Kebabs with Authentic Flavor: The Bunker’s temperature control is perfect for achieving the juicy succulence of seekh kebabs. The smoke adds another layer of depth to these ground meat wonders.

The East: Fish, Mustard, and Subtle Spice

Eastern India’s barbecue revolves around fresh fish and delicate spices.

  • Bengali Shorshe Maach with the BraaiCraft’s Stoker: Mustard is the star in this Bengali fish preparation. Use the Stoker’s asado-style grill to infuse a subtle smokiness without overpowering the delicate flavors of fish and mustard.
  • Smoked Biryani in the Bunker: Elevate a classic biryani by finishing it in the Bunker smoker. The gentle infusion of wood smoke transforms this rice dish into an extraordinary feast.

The West: Coastal Grills and Fiery Flavors

The Konkan Coast and Goa boast of seafood grills packed with punchy flavors.

  • Goan Peri-Peri Prawns on the Stoker: Recreate this fiery Portuguese-influenced dish using the BraaiCraft Stoker. The asado-style grill provides the perfect char for the peri-peri marinated prawns.
  • Mangalorean Kane Rava Fry with Portable BraaiCraft’s Grill – Refire & Shroud: Enjoy this crispy, spicy semolina-coated ladyfish preparation grilled to perfection on BraaiCraft’s portable grills on your next beach picnic.

The South: Coconut, Curry Leaves, and Tangy Grills

South India showcases vibrant barbecue traditions with bold, tangy flavours.

  • Kerala-Style Grilled Karimeen: This pearl spot fish, coated in a tangy spice rub, gets a flavourful upgrade on BraaiCraft’s Stoker.
  • Chettinad Chicken on the Firepit: Enjoy the robust flavours of this spicy chicken curry, slow-cooked over the flames in a BraaiCraft firepit.
