Recipe and Narration By Purna Chowdhury
Rock Salt Garlic Chicken (বীট নুন রসুন দিয়ে মুর্গির ঝোল)
My latest ‘fad’ is rustic cuisine that had started a couple of years back with my discovery of Boatmen’s cuisine in Bengal and Assam. I love the Spartan audacity. My other fascination is using rock salt in cooking. They came together in this recipe without-a-name I hijacked from a friend, who is a gourmet and a culinary philanderer. The recipe happened as a casual conversation on ‘What’s for dinner?’ and he got going. He is much traveled too and has tasted tribal and regional cuisine from most parts of India. He does not sell his recipe. He says: “Just try it”. And I did.
