Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.
For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.
For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.
Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.
Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.
When you want to throw an Indian BBQ party, just head to the Bolly-Wood-Fired Indian Fare flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to bring the bold flavors of India to your backyard grill.
Flavor Profile: Indian food, tandoori spices, garam masala, curry, yogurt, cardamom, cumin, coriander, cilantro, garlic, dried chilies and mint.
Inspiration: Indian food is known for distinctive spice mixtures and sauces. These tongue tingling concoctions simultaneously hit spicy, sweet, sour and savory flavors that explode in your mouth.
With every bite, think of your taste buds performing a Bollywood dance number.
My take: Indian spiced grilled pork and chicken served with flavored oils, yogurt sauces and chutneys plus fresh salads with Indian flair.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Indian BBQ party.
Here is a video about an Indian BBQ restaurant. See how Indian flavors and grilling over an open flame go hand in hand.
And here is another Indian BBQ restaurant where they serve everything buffet style. They bring meat skewers cooked to order right to the table.
And no Indian BBQ inspiration would be complete without some Bollywood singing and dancing.
OK, now that you are inspired, let’s talk about creating an Indian BBQ menu that will leave your friends and family begging for more.
We all have our favorite cuts of meat, pork and chicken. And we believe everyone should be free to pick their favorites when throwing a backyard cookout for friends and family. Therefore, we provide cooking instructions for a wide variety of meats… perfect for the grill. (*Indoor cooking instructions also provided*)
Since most people in India don’t eat beef, we have restricted our Indian food choices to pork and chicken only. (Don’t worry, there are so many great choices and flavors to choose from, you won’t even miss the beef).
|Pork: Pork Tenderloin, Pork Chops & Pork Ribs (Baby Back Ribs and Spare Ribs)||Chicken: Chicken Breast & Chicken Pieces (Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks)|
When you take your favorite cuts of beef, pork and chicken and add the flavors associated with Indian food… get ready for a flavorful and unique Indian BBQ experience.
