cooking in mud
I am working on various Village Development Projects in Thailand [Tak province].
For a fundraising purpose we would like to prepare food cooked in mud.
Is there anybody who could provide some tips-hints
- as we have no experiences in this field.
Thanks in advance.
There is a Chinese way of cooking chicken that involves mud...Beggar's Chicken. The bird is marinated ( soy, rice wine, sesame oil, S&P) and stuffed with savory ingredients (shredded mushrooms, pork, preserved vegetables & bamboo shoots) then wrapped in thinly sliced suet/fat. Finally, the whole bird is wrapped in lotus leaves that have been soaked to soften. Clay/Mud is then molded around the chicken....cook in coals. The lotus leaves add a very nice nuance to the chicken.
