  1. In a small saucepan, add  soy sauce,  mirin,  sake, 75 ml water,  brown sugar, crushed pepper, garlic, ginger and the green part of 1of the 9 green onions. Bring it to a boil over high heat.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce reduces to one-third of its original volume. It will take about 30 minutes. Let it cool to room temperature before using.
  3. The sauce will thicken with a glossy shine as it cools.
  4. Reserve one-third of the sauce in a small bowl for final basting, just before serving. To prevent cross-contamination, use this reserved sauce with a clean brush only after the chicken is fully cooked.

To Prepare/Assemble the Yakitori

  1. Cut the white and light green parts of the remaining green onions/scallionsinto 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces. Cut the onions, capsicum and spring onions into cube shape.

  • 2 lits           Full fat Cow milk
  • 15 gms       Refined flour
  • 8 gms        Corn flour
  • 750 gms    Sugar
  • 15 ml         Rose water
  • 30 gms      Khoya
  • ½ gm        Saffron
  • 25 ml         Milk
  • 100 ml      Vinegar
  • 25 gms      Mixed nuts
  • 10 gms      Glazed red cherries


  1. Heat the cow milk on high heat. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Once it cools down, mix the vinegar in by diluting it with water and add to the hot milk. Stir lightly till the milk curdles.
  3. Cool down the milk by adding cold water and a few ice cubes and stir. Strain the chenna through a piece of muslin and squeeze to remove all the water. You should have 250 grams of chenna.
  4. Transfer the chenna onto a worktop. Mix together half a teaspoon of refined flour and the corn flour and add to the chenna. Knead with the heel of your hands to a smooth mixture.
  5. Divide the mixture into twenty-five equal portions and roll into oblong smooth rolls, taking care that there are no cracks. Make a small dent on one side and set aside.
  6. Mix the remaining flour with half a cup of water and set aside.
  7. To make the syrup, cook the sugar with five cups of water, stirring continuously till the sugar dissolves. Add the milk and let the syrup come to a boil. Collect the scum which rises to the surface with a ladle and discard. Continue to cook the syrup for a few minutes longer. Strain the syrup into a bowl.
  8. Pour one cup of the syrup into a deep, wide non-stick pan and add four to five cups of water. When the syrup comes to a boil, add the chenna rolls and half the flour-water mixture. The syrup will start frothing. Let the rolls cook in the syrup. Do not stir, but gently agitate the syrup so that the balls do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  9. Slowly drizzle half a cup of water along the sides of the pan every five minutes to prevent the syrup from thickening and forming strings. Continue cooking for fifteen minutes, or till the rolls spring back to their original shape.
  10. Drain the rolls and soak in the reserved syrup. Chill for at least two hours so that the syrup is absorbed by the chenna rolls.
  11. For the topping, cook the khoya with the rose water, saffron, sugar syrup and yellow colour till the mixture thickens to the consistency of jam.
  12. To spread the topping, slit the chum chum and pipe the topping into it. Garnish it with saffron strands and glazed red cherries.
