Chicken Kadipatta Roast

Chicken roast

 

This blog has been gathering dust for more than a couple of years now. Although my passion for food has not deteriorated I have been too lazy to update the blog with recipes. My passion for food has infact increased by manifolds after moving out of India and trying out global cuisine. I have been experimenting a lot with food, clicking pictures as always but they never made it to the blog. Some time back I uploaded the pictures of food in Facebook and received a lot of recipe requests. I thought why not update the blog and share the link?

The first recipe that I jotted down after ages was this Chicken Roast flavoured with loads of Curry Leaves. This recipe has been adapted from the Kerala style chicken fry I learnt from a friend who is an awesome cook himself.

Half kilo chicken – cut into small pieces preferably bone in

Oil – 2-3 tbsp for frying

Grind together:

  • Red chillies – 5-6 ( add more if you like it hot)
  • Ginger – 1″ piece
  • Garlic – 5-6 cloves
  • Onion – 1 small or 1/2 medium (optional)
  • Curry leaves – 2 large handful
  • Salt

Method:

  1. Soak chicken in salt water overnight (in fridge)
  2. Next morning drain the water out, pat dry with kitchen towel and marinate in the ground masala.  Leave the chicken marinated in fridge for 1-2 hours.
  3. Heat 2-3 tbsp oil, add a few curry leaves, marinated chicken. Cook till all the chicken is cooked and dry.

Note:

  • You can completely skip the overnight soaking bit, and just marinate for half an hour in freezer if you are in a hurry. Still tastes great!
  • Instead of curry leaves, you can make it with kasuri methi.
  • If your chicken pieces are with skin and fat, add less oil initially as extra oil will ooze out while it’s cooking.
