Chicken Ghee Roast

Chicken Ghee Roast

Chicken ghee roast is inspired by the Mangolarian chicken roast made with clarified butter/ghee. It sounds an exotic chicken dish and definitely tastes delicious with aromatic spices roasted in ghee. The recipe source is Sailus kitchen. Serve this with mildly flavored rice, neer dosa or appam.

To marinate
Chicken- 3/4 kg
Yogurt- 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp

To roast and make a paste
Kashmiri chilly-15
(or according to your spice preference)
Coriander seeds- 2 tbs
Cumin seeds- 1/3 tsp
Fenugreek seeds- 1/3 tsp
Black peppercorns-a few

To saute
Shallots- 4-5 (optional)
Ginger garlic paste- 3 tbs
Ghee- 3 tbs
Tamarind pulp- a small ball
Sugar- 1 tbs
salt to taste
Curry leaves- a few

Cut chicken into small pieces. I used boneless chicken. Marinate with yogurt,turmeric powder,salt and pepper powder and keep aside for an hour or overnight in the refrigerator.
Dry roast the ingredients listed under to roast and grind and make it into a fine paste. Heat 2 tbs of ghee in a pan and roast this ground paste in a low flame till the raw flavor disappears and ghee separates. Keep this roasted paste aside.
Heat the rest of the ghee and add curry leaves and ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. Now add the marinated chicken and saute for five to six minutes. Cover and cook till the chicken is almost done. Remove the lid and allow the water to reduce.  Add the roasted paste, tamarind pulp, sugar and mix well. Fry till the masala gets well coated with the chicken or adjust according to the consistency you prefer. Serve warm.
