Product Launch By Godrej Tyson Food

This Wednesday I attended a product launch by Godrej Tyson, India’s premier poultry and vegetarian products manufacturer.

These are pre-marinated chicken foods that serves as instant food when unexpected guests turn up. Just stir fry and they are done.

However, for the housewife who likes to give her personal touch, these can be turned a surprisingly innovative dish. It is not easy to replicate the original taste each time we churn out something new, (personally speaking, I can never reproduce the same taste) but, with its’ marinated standard chicken, there can be some closeness to the original taste.

Mr Arabind Das, (COO, Godrej Tyson Food Ltd) and Chef Micheal Swamy (of MasterChef fame) demonstrated some wonderful dishes during the cook-off.

The recipes were later shared with us.

This was another interesting creation by chef Micheal Swamy. Fried achari chicken was stir fried, stuffed into zucchini flower, dipped in the cornflour and miada batter and deep fried. I was able to taste and this had very good flavor and chicken was extremely tender.
