Chicken Ghee Roast

Chicken Ghee Roast
This chicken dish is my BIL's  favorite. Whenever i go to Mysore ,i'll definitely cook this chicken dish.It
tastes so good because its roasted in curds for 4 times and also it will be tender and smooth.I prepare this chicken lot many times as a side dish  whenever I prepare some Rasam.Though this is a side dish ,You can make it dry and can even serve as a starter too.

Add ginger garlic paste,dry powders, ajinamoto . Add washed chicken, salt and fry well and close the lid and cook chicken till almost done.

Divide 1 cup curds into 1/4 cup each,add 1/4 cup curds and roast chicken well on high heat till curds get absorbed completely.

Repeat this for another 3 times till you complete all the curds and cook till dry. 
In a small pan,add ghee,curry leaves,cashews fry well,add crushed black pepper powder and pour it over chicken.

Garnish coriander leaves and Serve hot with lemon wedges and onion.

My Notes:
  • Make sure to add curds once chicken is cooked.Keep flame high add curds and roast 4 times.
  • Last time when you add curds,mix well fry chicken and before it get dried ,Turn off the heat so that moisture remains and chicken will be still soft.
  • Take care not to overcook chicken,or else it turns hard.
  • Taste for this dish mainly comes from roasting chicken for 4 times with curds and also the final ghee tadka.
