Tandoori-Style Chicken Drumsticks With Pickled Onions And Naan

Some  of my favorite food-memories from my time living in Karachi, Pakistan, were the many wonderful dinners Maria and I had at the rooftop restaurant of our hotel, the ” Avari Towers,Karachi“.
Sadly, I understand that this restaurant has been converted into a steak restaurant by now ( after all, its been nearly 20 years since Maria and I lived there).
However, at the time, the roof top was a very exclusive local-fare only restaurant with a tandoori oven right there on the rooftop.
Benazir Bhutto, who a few years later became prime minister of Pakistan, resided in a house just next to our hotel and came to eat at the roof top a few times while we were there, which got Maria excited each time and she actually asked Mrs.Bhutto for an autograph (which she got, despite the incredible security), which made Maria happy and embarrassed me 🙂 .
Anyway, as far as the food was concerned, the restaurants at the Avari were in my opinion by far the best and safest places to enjoy a meal in all of Karachi and the tandoori dishes at the rooftop topped it all !
I had many a good tandoori dish while traveling in Pakistan and of course in India, but never did I find a good one in Florida in all the years I have resided here. While they might exist, so far they have eluded me. So, whenever I lust for tasty, well prepared tandoori-style food that rekindles my memories of times past, I usually have to take matters in my own hands. Such was the case again yesterday, when I prepared these delicious chicken drumsticks.
For the lack of an tandoori oven, I cooked the drumsticks under high heat under the broiler, which resulted in acceptable taste and texture.

  1. Dear Mr Susser,

    Good afternoon

    It is our great pleasure to know that you thoroughly enjoyed the Sky BBQ restaurant at Avari Towers.

    What is even more pleasing is that, after so many years you remember the taste so well.

    The Sky BBQ restaurant at our roof top is still there and offering a fantastic selection of local dishes, however we have recently introduced a Steak Night at our Asia Live restaurant on Fridays only which offers international and local steaks.

    We would be delighted to have you at Avari Towers again to enjoy the most enticing Tandoori dishes at our Sky BBQ.

    Best Regards,

    David Richard O’Hanlon
    General Manager

    1. Dear Sir,
      I wish I would be able to visit again. So many wonderful memories 🙂
      Hopefully, one day it will be possible again to visit Pakistan safely and enjoy the warmth, hospitality and tolerance which, judging from my own experience, the majority of its people possess 🙂
      Best regards,
      Hans
