Murg Takatak is an Indian street food served with the tandoori roti
I have grown up seeing my Appi gathering cutting of recipes from different magazines and newspaper. Later they were neatly filed according to the meal courses. When I saw ‘Cooking from Scrapbook” for this month’s challenge on MFBC started by my dear friend Rafee of The Big Sweet Tooth , I was super excited to participate. Having missed previous challenges due to circumstances , I wanted to participate in this month’s challenge anyhow.
For a food blogger do you know what is the precious thing in the world. Their recipe scrap books. Right ! I started writing scrap book long long back. Some consisted my own recipe creation , while others were recipe notes from different TV shows, newspaper clippings or shared by someone.This month challenge has given me the opportunity to share a delicious recipe of Murg Takatak which I had scribbled down.
Murg Takatak as the name suggest is made from chicken. While takatak is added because of the style of cooking. There is one spoon called tabeta or ulatni like a flat stapula but with slight edge. Would love to know if you have other name for it. Anyways, this spoon is used continuously during the cooking of murg takatak to crumble the chicken.And also the sound while using this tabeta is tak tak takatak. So thus the name. The ingredients required to prepare Murg Takatak are easily available in an indian household.
If you do try this recipe, please do share. Till next time.
