Spicy and sweet, my kids eat the onions from the pot and the hubs spoons the sauce over pasta or rice.

How to Make East Indian Baked Quail


  • 1Reserve butter and quail to the side, place the rest of the ingredients in a pot on your stove top at a medium heat for 20 minutes stirring occasionally
  • 2Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Take quails and rub butter on quails. Place in a deep, not too wide dutch oven or any stoneware or pyrex with a lid. Line the bottom.
  • 3Remove bay leaf.
  • 4Pour your sauce atop the quail and cover with lid. Place in oven. Should be totally covered, almost like a stew, not just fowl with some sauce around it. Needs at least an inch coverage.
  • 5Serve with rice, pasta, Israeli or French couscous (my favorite with this dish), or red quinoa.
