Kerala roast chicken

Preparation time: 30 mins | Cooking time: 45 mins

I came across this recipe from Lakshmi nair's cookery show. The recipe was really mouth watering and wanted to cook it right away. I had a few chicken drumsticks in the freezer and decided to go for it. It came out very good.

Chicken-1medium(cut into 20 pieces)
Kashmiri red chilli powder-1 1/4tbsp
Crushed pepper powder-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Juice of 1 lime
Salt to taste

Onion(finely chopped)-7medium
Ginger(finely chopped)-2 1/2tbsp
Garlic(finely chopped)-2 1/2tbsp
Green chillies(finely chopped)-2tbsp
Corinader powder-1tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder-1tbsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Garam masala powder-1tsp
Tomato sauce-3tbsp
Curry leaves-2 to 3 sprigs(as per your taste)
Oil for frying(preferably coconut oil)
Salt to taste

Marinate the chicken with lime juice, salt and pepper powder for about 1/2 an hour. Make a paste of turmeric powder, red chilli powder along with a little water and mix it with the marinated chicken and keep it aside for 15-20 mins.

You can either deep fry or shallow fry the chicken. Here I have shallow fried. Fry the chciken till done i.e light golden brown(don't make it crispy).

Heat some oil in a pan(you can use the one used for frying the chicken), add garlic, ginger and green chillies and fry till they are light brown in color. Now add the onions and fry till they turn brown. Then add the turmeric, red chilli and coriander powder and fry till they lose their raw smell. Add the tomatoes, salt, garam masala and cook for 5 mins. Now add the tomato sauce, curry leaves and cook until you get a thick gravy. Add the fried chicken and mix well, cook till all the masala is coated well with the chicken.

This goes well as a side dish for rice or even chapatis.
