Wow David, you folks that come from the land of ice and snow sure do eat well. That plate looks great.

Point for sure

Thanks Chris for the like and the comment

Thanks was a good looking meal for sure .
Ha Ha , we eat so well because or food never spoils as it is too cold and icy. Keeps everything nice and fresh.


See the Thin Blue Smoke , lol

Yeah if it wasnt for the ice and snow I'd move to Davids neighborhood just in the hopes that I could sit down to a meal like this. He just keeps coming up with meals that knock my socks off!


Thanks Jim for the like and the comment

For Christ sake Jim, keep your socks on , at least during supper, lol Thanks it was a lot of fun cooking with spices I am not real good at , so followed their recipes first. Now next time I can switch it up for me.

As for living up here , it's not that bad just 10 1/2 short months of winter and the rest of the year is summer rain storms . Ha Ha When you moving up.

DRKs, Wow, great post and an awesome looking plate. I love the creativity in this meal !!

Thanks crazy for the like and the comment

Thanks we really enjoyed the meal. And there were a couple different profiles going on here.
And the Sweet Tamarind Chutney was real good , and I can see using it as a glaze for other things.

Looks pretty good, David. As I've said before, we're not real big on Indian flavors, but I'd surely try this just to see if my tastes have changed...

Ha ha , Charles . Maybe if I keep trying new foods from India I can sway you.
Just kidding, I wanted to try a couple things and really enjoyed them. Just some nice different flavour profiles. And tasty also.

Damn David that is one fine looking meal!! Thanks for the walk through of it all!!

Thank you for the like and the comment.

Nice of you to say, I really enjoyed making and eating this meal.
Loved the flavours , and a couple new spices now for me to use in my regular foods I love .

Indian Smoked Spiced Ribs with Aloo Bonda ( Potato Snacks/ street potatoes ) And Sweet Tamarind Chutney

Been on an Indian food trip for the last few meals and this is one I have been looking forward to. Very good meal and lots of nice smells and flavours and a little heat at the end once finished .

Trimmed up a nice rack of ribs and cut in half, just cause, lol Mixed up the spices and good coat on the ribs and into the fridge for 24 hours.
Next day ( today ) into the smoker with black cherry and apple chips and chunks, at 250/260 deg . And finally a couple nice days here . Sunny and 7 deg. " C ".

While the ribs are rolling in the smoke I made up the Sweet Tamarind Chutney. Quite a blend of spices and Tamarind paste. This is very nice and kind of reminds me of a warm molasses. kinda lol. Let that simmer until it thickens up , about 20 minutes. This wil be a glaze for the ribs at the end and also some for a dipping sauce

3 hours have gone by and time to wrap the ribs in Peach paper with some butter , for an hour

Time to make the Aloo Bonda , this has many ways to spice . I think I read at least 7 recipes and all were a little different in the spice profile
and a little different in the batter also.
Boil the potatoes and mash. No milk or butter , want it to be able to keep its shape. In my CI I fried the mustard seeds , onions and the other spices ( watch the seeds as they like to pop all out of the pan. Ha Ha
Add the mashed to the browned spices and add the greens and lime juice ( it is a sub for one of the spices I did not have ) stir until mixed well. remove from heat and let cool a bit

Hour is up for the wrapped ribs. Remove from paper back on the tray rack and coat with a nice lather of the chutney. Back in the smoker foir 1 last hour

Ok time for the out side cooking on the side burner , Fill up one of my CI's with canola oil. Make the potato balls and set aside while making the batter.
Make the batter, test the oil . yes burns finger so its ready. Off to make a mess. I was surprised the potatoes in the oil turned red, I thought it would be yellow from the turmeric. But pretty to look at.

Of coarse as soon as i had the first few in the oil the propane ran out. Thank god I always have spares down by the Smokers Shack so grab a 30 pounder. And we are on again.

View attachment 690322

Ok Ribs are ready to come in and the balls are just about finished . time to get it all together.

Well this was a very nice meal and really packed with some different flavours for me , but enjoyed them , and the Chutney was the bomb.

Crispy spicy potatoes and ribs with a bite on the bone. What a fun to do meal. And enough bones for a snake or two for me in the morning.

thanks for making it if you did . I know I really drag these out , Ha Ha
