Nadan Chicken Roast

This is one of the best Nadan Chicken roast I have made. If you can make this in a clay pot, even better!

  1. Chicken - 1 kg
  2. Onion 4-5 * 
  3. Ginger - 2 inch piece
  4. Garlic - 8-9
  5. Curry Leaves - few
  6. Salt - According to taste
  7. Water - 1 cup - only if you need gravy
  8. Oil - 2- 3 tbsp
To Roast **
  1. Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  2. Pepper - 1 tsp
  3. Coriander powder - 2 tsp
  4. Garam masala - 2 tsp
  5. Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp 
  1. Cut the chicken into small pieces.
  2. Dry roast all the ingredients under roast and mix well with the chicken pieces. Keep aside for 1-2 hrs.
  3. Now slice the onion, ginger and garlic into small pieces.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion, ginger and garlic till dark brown. Be careful not to burn them. 
  5. Now add curry leaves and sauté for few more seconds
  6. Now add the chicken mix to the onion mix.
  7. Add salt and water if you need more gravy
  1. Adding a little salt to the onion will reduce the sauté time.
  2. If you have time, slow cook the chicken. 
      * You can add more or less onion depending on how much gravy you need.
      * *  Again you can adjust the chilli and masala level according to your taste. Be careful not to burn.
