Tandoori Sizzle on cast iron plate

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi

I am doing a tandoori chicken dish years ago I went to a indian restaurant they served the tandoori chicken on a cast iron sizzle plate the effect was out standing I think they had raw onions on the sizzle plate with the cooked tandoori on the top. I'm looking at creating the same visual effect ( steam and noise a 2 foot high) any ideas what was on the hot plate?

 

Thanks Daza

I've not seen this done with a tandoori dish, but I've seen it done in a Tex-Mex restaurant with fajitas. The sauteed veggies and meat were piled on a cast iron pan which was smoking hot, (and safely fit into a custom-made wood holder). This caused some noise and sizzle. As it left the kitchen the server took a large wedge of lime and squeezed the juice onto the edges of the iron pan, thus causing even more steam and sizzle....very theatrical, albeit messy.

 

Hope that helps a bit?
