Rooftop barbeque party: A do it yourself guide



Saturday roof top parties with friends are a common thing for all of us. You plan for three or four of them and seven or eight of them turn up! The first question that crosses your mind is how you will have enough food for all?

It happened to us on a weekend and we had to prepare something quick, easy and tasty in barbeque style.

A quick visit to the nearby supermarket was the first essential move and then the menu got set as follows:

  • Roasted Chicken Wings, Barbeque Sauce :

After cleaning the chicken wings, season it with salt, chilli vinegar, pepper, paprika powder, ginger – garlic paste, 2 – 3 tablespoons of refined oil, Tabasco sauce and barbeque sauce. Refrigerate for an hour and then it is ready to put on the hot grills.

  • Grilled Pomfret, Indian Style:

Marinate the fish in vinegar and keep aside for 15 minutes. This takes off the pungent fishy smell.

After this, wash it with plain water and then marinate for 20 – 30 minutes in salt, little turmeric powder, ginger – garlic paste, red chilli powder, green chilli paste, dhania (coriander) powder, and 2 – 3 tablespoons refined oil.

Brush the fishes with red chilli flakes and refined oil on both sides and grill till they turn nice brown in colour.
