Our very own wood-fired vegetables cooked for more than an hour - and THEY ARE WORTH IT!!!! And You can make a Farmers Babeque Pit as well! This has been such a fun experiment that turned out to be super healthy as well, all thanks to the junior innovators in the house. Indian farmers use galvanised iron tasla’s (wok style basins) and we have plenty at the farm. The kids wanted to barbeque some vegetables and we came up with this innovative Farmer Barbeque Pit 😍💫💕 Here’s how to make your very own: 1. Take 2 clean Taslas (or any heat-resistant bowls) 2. Place ☝️ (one) of the Tesla on the ground and fill it with firewood or coal 3. Start a fire 🔥 and feed it for an hour or so 4. Let the fire die to embers 5. Take thin sticks or twigs that can be used as barbeque sticks. Alternatively, you can use a cotton textile to fill up your vegetables. 6. Add your fresh hand picked seasonal vegetables or anything you fancy to the barbeque sticks: cottage cheese (paneer), onion, pepper, tomato 🍅 , potato 🥔 , pumpkin 🎃 , pineapple 🍍 7. Use an old oven steel rack as a riser to place the barbeque sticks above the embers. 8. If you are using a cotton cloth, add lot of leaves 🍁 🍂 🍃 and twigs on the embers to create a barrier and gently place the cotton cloth above these. Simply place the vegetables inside the cloth and fold it over to cover them. Make sure the cloth is not touching the embers directly or it could catch fire 🔥 8. Cover the barbeque pit with the second Tasla and leave the vegetables to cook for, at least, an hour ⏰ 9. Check the vegetables every half hour or so, turn them if need be until they are nicely cooked 10. Carefully, open the make-shift pit, remember it will be quite hot, and take your veges out 11. 💕Serve the wood fired roasted vegetables hot🥣🍽. Maybe add a dash of fresh herbs 🌿 and garlic? A bit of salt and chilli flakes? To make it more interesting, we marinated our vegetables with some home made butter, salt, herbs and yogurt for a couple of hours before we roasted them. A great healthy way to welcome the winters :) Hope you enjoy experimenting as well..
