Chicken 65 Recipe Restaurant Style

The Chicken 65 is a dish spicy recipe of chicken fried by immersion, very popular in India and South Asia, where it is consumed as a starter. The particular flavor of the dish is due to the use of spices such as ginger, cayenne powder, mustard and vinegar. Despite the name Chicken 65 is universally recognized as the official name of the dish, there are multiple versions for the origin of the name.

The 65 is the year in which the plate was introduced in the menu of the famous Indian restaurant Buhari Hotel. In this menu there are in fact other variants introduced in subsequent years, such as the Chicken 78, Chicken 82 or Chicken 90. The number 65 represents the number of days that the meat should be marinated for a preparation, or even for the year of creation of the dish. However, the first interpretation seems wrong, because after 65 days of marinating the meat would be in an advanced state of decomposition. Other versions they want rather than the number comes from a list of 65 Indian recipes made ​​from chillies, and that this dish was just the sixty-fifth.

The number 65 indicates the days of the life of the chicken before slaughter, so about two months of life. However, skeptics argue that generally the best meat obtained from the bird is after 25-30 days of life, and that in 65 days the animal is already too old and fat.

The number 65 indicates the number of pieces in which the animal is dissected for the preparation, or indicates that only one chicken can prepare 65 portions. However, even this source turns out to be quite controversial, because a chicken cut into 65 shares would resemble more like a minced chicken meat rather than the Chicken 65.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.
