Kerala Chicken Roast



Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...



Ingredients
1)Chicken - 1 lb
 Chilly powder -1 1/2
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Powdered Garam masala-
(Two tsp of fennel powder, 5-6 cloves,2 inch stick
cinnamon, a small piece of nutmeg, 2 cardamon )
Vinegar- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For the Masala
Thinly sliced Onion- 2 medium
Thinly sliced ginger- 3-4 tsp
Thinly sliced garlic- 3-4 tsp
Chopped green chilly- 2
( I used 2 Jalapeno pepper instead of green chilly)
Coriander powder- 3/4 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp(optional)
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Meat  Masala- 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
oil



Dry roast the ingredients under garam masala and make a fine powder.Clean and cut chicken and marinate with all the ingredients listed under section one for about an hour. Cook this marinated chicken with half a cup of water till done. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the chicken pieces till it is crispy in the outer and set aside. (You can also follow the deep fry method. Fry the marinated chicken in medium flame till crispy)

Heat oil in a pan and saute ginger and garlic till there is a nice aroma followed by onions, green chilly and curry leaves till the onions become golden brown. Add in turmeric powder, coriander powder and pepper powder and garam masala and fry for a minute. Now add the  fried chicken and roast for two to three till it is completely dry and the masala gets well coated over the chicken. Serve with rice, appam or chapati.

Try this...
Hope you will all enjoy..
