Indian style saffron rice with meatballs

When I am in the mood to go Indian with my cooking, I generally prefer the saffron rice for simple reasons. First, I like the extravagant taste and smell of saffron; it is of course the unique and exclusive spice. Secondly I prefer the long perfumed Basmati rice when I wish to make a wholesome Indian main dish. And finally saffron rice is generally an one pot meal and though there are some hassles and perfection required to come up with the perfect result, it often does not require a side dish to go along.

Roasted chicken tandoori style

Roasted whole chickens are a delight when prepared in the perfect way and devoured upon with friends and family during ceremonial dinners. Last winter I already shared some tips of preparing that perfect roast in the French style (click here). However this time I thought of a twist. I am sure you must have often wondered how to bring a bit of novelty in the roasted bird for that special dinner. Well you can spice it up with some Indian twist.
