Headbanger’s Kitchen: The Bhayanak Bacon Bomb & Bhayanak Maut

Welcome to Headbanger’s Kitchen! Every week we’ll be bringing you an episode of the show where Sahil “Demonstealer” Makhija cooks a spectacular meal for a metal band. Recipe and instructions for preparation are always included so you can make it at home. Hope you’re hungry!

In the initial days the premise of the show was to name the dish after the band, I used to love it when bands had adjectives in their name. Case in point: Bhayanak Maut. For those not familiar with the band, they are India’s most popular metal band, well at least in the top 3 for sure. Bhayanak means horrific/gruesome/terrible and maut means death, so I presume you strung the two words together. So on episode 2 I planned to make a Bacon Bomb which is a pork mince meatload stuffed with cheese, onions, peppers and then wrapped in bacon and covered in BBQ sauce and baked in the oven. It’s not surprise that this has become the sort of ‘signature’ dish of the show. The episode was extremely entertaining as I interviewed the dual vocal powerhouse of the band, Sunneith and Vinay.

I do hope you give this a try and really enjoy the recipe and the interview.

Cheers!
