Bonfire Party Food Recipes

➡ Barbecued Fish

  • 4 skinless pomfret
  • 6 dried Kashmiri chillies
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 2 teaspoon of tamarind pulp
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of black peppercorns
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
  • Rice flour for dusting
Method of Preparation
  • Before starting the actual recipe, you need to soak the chillies in warm water for around 10 minutes. Drain the water and remove the seeds from chillies.
  • Put the chillies, tamarind, cumin seeds, turmeric, peppercorns, garlic, onion, sugar, and vinegar in a fine mixer (food processor) and blend until smooth. Add salt to taste.
  • Spread this spice paste on both the sides of the pomfret fillet, dust with rice flour.
  • These pomfret fillets can be cooked on a barbecue or a preheated grill for 1-2 minutes on both sides.
➡ Baked Potatoes

  • Potatoes
  • Filling as required
Method of Preparation
  • If you wish to cook the potatoes directly on the barbecue or the bonfire, you need to wash and wrap them in foils individually. Cook them in the barbecue for 1-1½ hours.
  • Other ways, in order to save time, you can precook them in an oven or a microwave till properly baked. These semi-cooked potatoes can be grilled on the barbecue until crisp!
  • Scoop out the potato and fill stuffing of your choice in the potato. Cheese and bacon, baked beans and grated cheese, cream cheese, scrambled egg, etc., make up excellent filling.
Lastly, one of the bonfire party tips is to have a large quantity of food in various varieties to make the party more enjoyable.
