Chicken Ghee Roast

Chicken Ghee Roast is a recipe that originates from Mangalore, India and is a popular Mangalorean dish which uses spices and clarified butter to roast the chicken. This dish is a must have for people with a palate for spicy food. Having said that, I’ve reduced the number of chillies in this recipe to suit most palates. If you desire a more fiery dish increase the quantity of red chillies as per your need.

  1. Wash chicken and marinate with chilli powder, salt, turmeric, coriander powder and ginger garlic paste. Keep at least for an hour.
  2. Now take a pan and add butter or ghee in medium flame, cumin seeds and when their color changes, add shallots, green chillies and curry leaves.
  3. After the onion is sautéed, add grated coconut and keep stirring and make sure it is not burnt. Now add the marinated chicken.
  4. Close it with the lid and not need to add water. Let the chicken cook from the water that chicken oozes out.(Do not add water when you cook chicken. The chicken has to get cooked with the chicken juices itself.)
  5. Once it is almost 90% done, add pepper powder, garam masala and cook till the chicken is dry and roasted. Keep the vessel open and not close it with lid now.
  6. When it is perfectly roasted, garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
