Amritsari Bhatti Da Murg

Amritsari Bhatti Da Murg

A road down the memory lane,This dish reminds me of my good old days spend in South Africa, As it was my first encounter with the people and world other than India, it was and will be always special and close to my heart.Still remember those days when we only had bunch of Indian families around to get along . We didn't had access to any Indian channels and have to settle down only with the channels broadcasted by SABC . They used to broadcast  a half hour show where in they used to tell more of Indian culture ,Bollywood movies, songs continued with an Indian recipe by 5 star chefs. This was the only show which I used to wait for  every week. This is where I saw the recipe of Bhatti da murg and penned it down and tried it. We didn't have a tandoor but being an ardent non veg fan always got hold of barbeque grill wherever we moved. Thanks to the BBQ ,we never missed the tandoori dishes ever even staying abroad.
   Amritsar cuisine is very unique and famous all over ,amritsari kulcha, amritsari fish, amristsari daal are just the few delicacies to devour the  taste of amritsari tradition tempered with punjabi flavors Bhatti da murg sure calls for attention.
