At Masala Monk, we are always on the search for the unknown. We love to evolve. After the immense love we received on our vegetarian pickles, we were on the lookout to create something interesting for non-vegetarian lovers as well!
Chicken. A word that raises the taste buds of all nonvegetarians.
This pickle is made by “Thakur and Verma Foods” – a collaboration by Pratyush Thakur and Abhinav Verma. After working as engineers in multiple metros for few years, both of us were pulled to Himachal Pradesh due to our love for Himalayas (which is where our ancestral roots lie as well!). We are based out of Kangra Valley and we make our creations in our homes here. We wanted to bring out the best flavors of Himachal Pradesh and what better way to start out with our first product as “Chicken Pickle“.
As hard-core food lovers from our hearts, having eaten in over 25+ Indian states, we wanted to create something that caters to the diversity of India. After various recipe iterations, we proudly locked down our recipe from the foothills of Dhauladhar Ranges in Kangra Valley.
This particular variant is a “100% low fat chicken breast boneless” version. We have only one source of chicken and we personally source the chicken breast directly from a local free range farm house in Kangra Valley, Himachal Pradesh. All the herbs and spices(15+) are sourced from local manufacturers. It is cooked in 100% premium grade “Kachhi Ghani” mustard oil for 3+ hours over slow flame. Throughout the cooking process, we make sure all WHO guidelines are followed to remove any possible contaminants. We also monitor the cooking temperature carefully (>90 F is maintained for an hour at least).
Whether you are at your home eating dinner, office churning spreadsheets, hostel bunking classes or hosting a party for your loved ones, we bet this pickle will have a space in your meal. We make very small batches in our home kitchen (Yes! In our actual home), with absolutely zero preservatives. If you are a non-vegetarian and into homemade pickles, we bet you’ll dig this!
