Let’s see how to make Chicken roast with step by step instructions:

heat oil in a non stick or thick bottomed pan. preferably coconut oil.

add thinly sliced onions and fresh curry leaves. add 2 or more springs of curry leaves.

fry onions until brown and add green chilies slit and ginger garlic paste

fry until raw smell goes off and add coriander powder. add 1/4 cup coriander powder. not less not more.

further add chilli powder and pepper powder. adjust chilli powder according to your spice level

fry for a minute until the masalas are well combined and fresh aroma arises from the combined masala. keep it in simmer else it may get burnt.

further more add chopped tomatoes and fry until it is well mixed

sprinkle little water, close and cook until it forms to a thick masala. approximately takes 5-10 minutes in medium heat.

open and add chicken pieces, salt to taste

further add turmeric powder and mix well until well combined

add little water – 1/2 cup, close and cook until chicken is done. generally as chicken leaves out enough water, still  i have added 1/2 cup not minding about the consistency as am going to dry out the curry. if you want it in curry consistency. add more water and cook. you can even pressure cook at this stage.

open and mix well. the oil leaves out from the chicken perfectly indicates chicken is good and masala is well fried.

Now its an important part. open and keep the heat in simmer, cook until it gets roasted and dried. until all the water is gone. don’t forget to stir in between to avoid chicken getting scorched to the bottom of the pan. it takes nearly 20- 30 minutes to get roasted.

serve hot with rice or roti.
