Thanks.

Recipes are already available on several websites. I will also write how I make these:

Gobi Manchurian dry
-----------------------
- Cut cauliflower into small pieces and wash
- Boil water and add little milk (few teaspoons)
- Add cauliflower pieces into boiling water and boil for few minutes
- Strain the boiled cauliflower and keep aside
- Prepare a batter of gobi manchurian masala, corn flour and ginger garlic paste with little water or lemon juice
- Dip boiled cauliflower pieces into this batter and deep fry
- Heat oil in a wok (kadhai), add chopped green chillies and garlic and fry
- Add chopped onion and capsicum and fry
- Add salt and gobi manchurian masala. (Gobi manchurian masala packet contains 2 masalas - one for making the batter and one for adding at this stage)
- Add deep fried cauliflower pieces
- Add vinegar, chilly sauce, soya sauce and tomato sauce
- Fry over high flame, keep stirring
- Garnish with spring onions and serve hot

Egg Hakka Noodles
---------------------
- Boil water in a vessel and add some oil (few teaspoons)
- Add noodles into boiling water and boil for few minutes (don't overboil or noodles will become sticky)
- Strain noodles and keep aside
- Heat oil in a wok (kadhai)
- Add chopped green chillies, onions and ginger garlic paste and fry
- Add chopped capsicum, cabbage and carrot
- Add salt and noodles masala
- Add boiled noodles
- Add vinegar, chilly sauce, soya sauce and tomato sauce
- Add beated eggs and stir well (or you can prepare an omlette separately, cut it into thin long pieces and add to the noodles)
- Fry over high flame, keep stirring

Some of you have posted about the availability of habaner peppers in Mumbai. You don't get those but there's a similar orangish-red chilli(imported- I thinkk they're Thai) from Juhu market which is almost as hot and has the same flavor as habanero. Also let me introduce you guys to Blair's Mega Death sauce!

It's made from a combination of Habanero, Cayenne, Chipotle and Ancho peppers. I received a bottle as a gift from a friend recently and it is deelicious and it is HOT!!! The dude who gifted it to me just uses little drops of this by dipping a toothpick in his bottle!!!

As promised, I am posting the photo of Egg Hakka Noodles prepared by me last night.

I would request everyone to share the recipes and images of the dishes prepared. It would be an encouragement for the rest of the members.

Cool Yes, I too cook!

Just happened to note this thread.
I have been initiated into coal based grilling in recent months by my friends.
We have a crudely made stove (see photos).

I bought a Weber Chimney Starter recently (see photos).
This avoids starter fluids like keresene or diesel which we were using earlier (Some days we use camphor).
Two advantages of NOT using starter fluids are safety and smell.
Though Weber was very expensive at Rs.2,900.

I have also bought a stove from 'Prestige' for my home use (will post photos soon!).

I am yet to read this thread fully and will be glad to share my experiences here!

We were cooking fish (Sardines, and similiar) in these photos.
They were tasty!

An interesting marinade that worked very well with chicken

15 Chicken drumsticks with some deep cuts on them.
10 Tbsp Lemon Juice (we used Dabur Lemon bottle)
7 tbsp Vinegar
5 tbsp Wheat Flour
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Some Pepper
Salt.

Chicken legs marinated overnight.

Fried in an electric fryer for 15 mins at 170 degrees.

Excellent. Try it out.

Smile Barbecue!

Here is a photo of my Barbecue stove I bought recently.
I am cooking paneer, garlic and mushroom over hot coals.
Garlic is good for the heart and the mushroom is extremely tasty!

The stove is portable, its legs can be unscrewed.

Will be cooking again in a few days again and will post better resolution photos then!

It is from 'Prestige' which is famous for pressure-cookers in India.
Maybe they discontinued this product due to low sales.
I bought it in Tuticorin at their official outlet for Rs.3,140 on 21.07.2010.

The manual says - Model: Prestige Barbecute - Charcoal based - 60 cms.

Here are some google search results:

Nice to see more people leaning towards the grill these days. Definitely a fun thing to do, and if you can combine it with some good cocktails (and definitely good music), it's the best way to enjoy being outdoors.
As for the Weber chimney, do use 3-4 sheets of newspaper to get the fire going. I typically add lighter fluid to get the coal red hot in a short span of time. Works well when you want the heat to remain in the grill for a longer period of time, especially for slow cooking of fruits/ sea food.

Yes, I use just three sheets of newspaper with one matchstick.

It is like magic because earlier I was struggling to light the coals with kerosene, and it took a lot of time, patience and supervision with fanning the flames. And when it goes off, to light it again spending a lot of matchsticks.

Also I found out now that it is dangerous to pour kerosene over already lit coals. The fluid can evaporate and ignite suddenly.

Did research on the internet, and invested in the Weber Chimney starter (bought it in Ooty for Rs.2,900).
(There are a lot of videos on YouTube too).

If you have anyone visiting from the States ask them to bring you a bottle. It's also available on Amazon.

Jolokia is deadly. You can't handle them without wearing gloves I've heard. It's also used as an elephant repellant!
