Broiled Spiced Quail Wrapped in Bacon

Lightly coat the quail with oil. Combine the cumin, curry powder, sugar, allspice, salt, cayenne and black pepper in a small dish. Evenly sprinkle the seasonings over the quail on both sides. Wrap 1 bacon slice around each, securing it with a toothpick.


Arrange the quail with toothpick side down in a single layer on a broiler rack placed over a pan (for drippings). (This can be prepared to this point several hours ahead and refrigerated.)


To serve, broil the quail about 7 inches from the heat source until it is browned and crispy, about 6 minutes a side. Serve hot, garnished with herb sprigs. Pass chutney separately.
