Outdoor rustic cooking in India



I thought this was pretty interesting to see one man prepare enough food for about 100 people (homeless, poor).

I like those huge pans. Now I want to make some fried chicken, yummy.

What I think is great is how everyone is always trying to get the best, latest most popular gadget or appliance. This guy, throws a few cinder blocks together, a large pot, not a utensil in sight, and cooks the mother load of food under extremely primitive circumstances.

Very cool. Check out his excellent wet-hand dry-hand technique

Larry, he does have a spider for taking the chicken out of the oil. It's very impressive, though.

Yeah they're huge. Organic free range chicken.

I like how the young man (the one filming I guess) says "KFC!" when he sees the first batch out of the fryer. They probably do have KFC's in the larger cities in India, but it's probably a super rare treat to eat at a place like that.

If I tried to squat for even two minutes, I'd be a hurting unit. Heck, who am I fooling, I'd probably tip over.

Great video!

Two things I found interesting.

The lack of seasonings other than salt and the use of all of those shiny new aluminum pans to deliver the chicken. I expected a heavy use of spices in the coating mix and a simple wax paper bag to hold the individual servings of chicken.

Me too. He has a little red plastic low chair/pedestal thing. I'd be sitting on that. :)

They do have KFC in India. When I was working in Pakistan they also had KFC. Lot more expensive than the local places. But they people who could afford it would go due to knowing the food was cooked in hygienic conditions.
