Kozhi Nirachathu(Malabar style stuffed Chicken)

Posted by Annita on December 13, 2008

Kozhi Nirachathu(Stuffed Chicken) and Aadu Nirachathu(Stuffed Goat) are two popular dishes among Malabar muslims, which they usually serve on festive occasions.I’ve heard a lot about these dishes from my relatives in Calicut,but didn’t get a chance to taste it from Malabar yet.After seeing the recipe posted by our dear Malabar girl ,I couldn’t resist preparing it and I must say this is a perfect dish for a Mallu style Thanksgiving feast,tastes great with white rice/roti.

All the credit of this recipe goes to Mallugirl of Malabar Spices and Simi of Cooking with Simi.This is how I made it….

Ingredients :-

For Marinating :

Whole Chicken – 1 small
Lemon – 1/2
Red Chilly powder – 3 to 4 tsp
Turmeric powder – 2tsp
Salt – to taste

For Stuffing :

Egg – 1 or 2 depending on the size of your chicken
Onion sliced – 1 big
Green chillies slit- 3 or 4
Curry leaves – a sprig
Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 tsp
Red chilly powder – 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder (You can use biriyani masala,meat masala or egg masala instead) – 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped – 1/2 cup
Cashewnuts chopped – 1 tsp (Optional)
Raisins chopped – 1 tsp (Optional)
salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Kitchen twine (for tying the chicken’s hands and legs)

Veggies used (Optional) :

Potatoes cut in thick stripes(like for french fries) – 1 or 2
Carrots cut in stripes – 1
Beans cut into 2 or 3 pieces- 5

For the gravy :

Onions sliced – 2 big
Green chillies chopped- 3 – 4
Tomatoes sliced thin – 2 medium ones or 1/2 can puree
Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp
Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
Aniseeds(Perumjeerakam) – 1 tsp
Garam Masala or Biriyani Masala – 1/2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed

Method :-

1.Marinating :
Skin the chicken and clean it thoroughly.Make tiny slits on the chicken both inside and outside, for the masala to penetrate well.Now apply a dash of lemon juice all over the chicken, to remove any unwanted smell.Rinse again in cold water and keep it aside.Prepare a marinade using red chilly powder,turmeric powder and salt adding necessary water to make a smooth paste.Apply the paste all over the chicken both inside and outside.Cover it well and refrigerate it overnight or for atleast 2 hrs.

2.Boiling eggs :

Boil the eggs till it is fully cooked.When hard boiling the eggs ,always use eggs at room temperature and also add a little salt in the water,this will somewhat prevent sticking of the eggs to the shells.When the eggs are done ,immediately transfer the eggs into a bowl of cold water and allow it to cool.When it is cold peel off the shell and reserve.

3.Preparing Stuffing :

Heat oil in a pan and saute onions,curry leaves,green chillies and ginger-garlic paste until onion turns translucent.Add the spice powders (for stuffing) and fry it in medium heat for 2 -3 mts or until everything is blended together.Add salt and the rest of the ingredients for stuffing and mix together.Finally add the boiled egg (whole or sliced half),and fry for few more minutes.Switch off the heat and keep this aside.

4.Filling the stuffing into the chicken :

First push the eggs into the cavity and then the onions,be careful not to overstuff.Now using a kitchen twine tie together chickens legs first ,and then the hands.

5.Preheating the oven :

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

6.Frying the chicken :

Heat a big pan,big enough to fit the chicken and add oil into it.You may need 1/4th -1/3rd cup of oil for it.Place the chicken gently into the pan .

kozhi_nirachathu

Fry the chicken,until all the four sides are lightly browned,and not fully fried.You have to turn the chicken as and when needed.

kozhi_nirachathu

Drain the chicken and keep it aside.

7.Arranging chicken into the baking dish :

Arrange the chicken in the middle of a baking dish with breast side down.If you’re using veggies add those around the chicken.

kozhi_nirachathu

Drizzle a little left over oil from the frying on to the chicken ,cover it and bake for 30 mts.(You may need to turn the chicken in between to ensure proper cooking on all the sides.Also stir the veggies to prevent sticking to the bottom.)

8.Preparing the gravy :

Grind aniseed into a fine powder and mix together with all the other spice powders(for the gravy).Now to the same pan in which the chicken is fried(add more oil if needed),add onions,curry leaves,coriander leaves and chillies and saute them until onion starts to turn brown.Add ginger-garlic paste ,stir well,thrown in tomatoes and fry in a medium heat until everything is blended well.Add the spice powders and fry them until it starts to spread a nice aroma.Add the salt and mix together.

9.Adding gravy into the chicken :

When the initial baking is done,take it out and pour the gray all over the chicken such that it is fully covered in the sauce.

10.Final baking :

Bake the chicken for 45 more minutes uncovered,checking in between.When the chicken is well done and the onions are fully caramelised,take it out of the oven,cool ,remove the twine and carve.

(Note :- You can also prepare this dish dry,without adding gravy.Also if you dont have an oven,try preparing it in the wok itself either dry or with gravy.)

    excellent recipe. can i try this recipe without using kitchen twine. will all the stuffings comeout?where can we get kitchen twine. i live in london

    If you dont tie it out, the stuffing may come out…Try using some thick thread if you dont have a twine..

    Hi Anitha:
    Are aniseed & shah jeera and fennel seed same
    as prumjeerakam?
    What is mace ? is this star anis or thakkolam?

    Sally.

    fennel seed is perumjeerakam
    Check out here for the difference btw aniseed and fennel seeds
    shah jeera/caraway seeds is different – sheema jeerakam
    Mace means jaathi patri…its thee red cover of jaathikka/nutmeg

  14. Anu said

    hai Annita
    i have one doubt after frying the chicken in wok do we have to bake it in oven?

    Yes.first you fry it and then transfer it into oven.
    Alternatively u can omit the baking part and cook the chicken in the wok itself ,if you wish..

    Hi Annita,

    Interesting recipe!

    Annitha, I need a suggestion from you. I will be moving to US in a short while.

    I want to make Idli, paal-appam, Dosha etc.

    I am not sure whether i should carry a mixie/grinder along with me.

    Could you please suggest whether the food processor over there is sufficient to make indian batter? Will i get the same results in the softness?

    Please let me know your suggestion when you find time.

    Please keep posting more.

    Cheerio :)
    Anna

    I think its better to carry atleast a mixer…thats what i’m using here…The mixer you get here is not soo good in grinding in small quantities…

  25. Anna said

    Hi Annita,

    That was a prompt reply, when i doubted whether i would receive any.

    Thanks for your input. Some how geo convinced me not to get one, and to travel light as i am a first time flyer.

    So not taking anything immediately, well he assured we can get one, if life is impossible with it ;)

    Thanks once again.

    cheerio

    Very good recipe.
    I invited guests for this past Christmas and made this recipe…. yummy. I will grade this as 10/10.
    Thank you for this fantastic recipe.

  27. Rg said

    I tried this recipe for New year, but without the stuffing. I skipped that part. Still it was very good. I browned it on the stove top as mentioned in your recipe, and then transferred the same pot with chicken and vegetables, to the oven, covered it up with it’s lid instead of foil and Wow!it was super soft and easy to carve. Thanks for this recipe. Next time I’ll try with the stuffing too.

  28. Deepa Joy said

    Congratulations! so little Milan is going to have a baby sister or bro, perhaps? Is he prepared for it. Take rest as much as possible. Enjoy this time (inspite of the nausea and vomiting, which can get irritating)as this is one phase of life where we are pampered.And this is one time where Milan and his dad need to come more closer and be reminded of the parents’ love towards him. I have 3 chidren, 7yrs, 2yrs and 5months. that’s why all this advice.

    Hi Dear Top Chef Anita,

    Thank you soo much for this receipe. We made this for Easter 2010 and it turned out delicious. Please see our pics. One tip we have is : that if you dont have twine then you can roll up a sheet of aluminium foil and use it to tie the legs of the chicken.Another tip is that : To make sure that the stuffing does not leak, stuff another flat piece of foil into the chicken after adding the stuffing. It will act as a cover for it.

    Once again THANK YOU SOO MUCH!

    Looks like it’s so much work but it’s all worth it because it looks so delicious and tasty!!!! I love chicken!

    Spicy and roasted chicken is tempting me…Baking then all the more healthy they are

  99. This is a dish worthy of a feast! Wonderful and complex flavors!

    Hi Annita,

    haven’t heard from you in a while is all well? I think you have done some thing like a lifetime’s achievement by compiling all these recipies. I lost my grandmom last year and now i come to your site when i need to check on some recipies. Thank you for all your efforts.

    I think you must publish a book with your recipies. ( i would like to order 10 copies. I would like to leave it for my daughter and my cousins who are far from home and parents.
    Look forward to more posts from you!

    Hi Annita,
    Saw the recipe and the pic. I really, really want to make this. BUT I am stuck in a small, dark and totally oven-less kitchen in another city! I have very few vessels – a non-stick frying pan and what can be termed as a cross between a saucepan and a frying pan… and a handi… and other miscellaneous, utterly useless cookware. So how can I make this beautiful, tempting and I can imagine – absolutely deeee-licious dish for Easter?
    Help!!!
    Ammu

    Dear Annita,

    Thanks for the recipe of stuffed chicken. I made it on saturday and my husband loved it.
    I find your blog very helpful in my cooking experiments. I am a vegetarian and my husband is a big fan of meat and sea food.
    I started cooking non veg only after marriage. It is now about 6 months and I have prepared some good tasty non veg dishes (according to my husband)! Thanks to your blog!! He says, he never imagined I would cook non veg so well!! :) Thanks again.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    First time in your blog, Wonderful Recipes . Great Work!!!! Will be back in your space!!!

  133. Faheema said

    After marinating, I cooked in the cooker without water for one whistle. Then light fried in little oil. Used that oil for cooking the gravy, but didnt do any baking. I took out half of the gravy and added the stuffed chicken into it and cooked for a little while after pouring the same gravy over the top. Any remaining water that comes from the chicken itself in the cooker can also be added to this gravy. This method helps to avoid lots of oil by not frying the chicken.- Faheema

  162. Thank you for this nice and charming recipe. I have been eating the chicken for several times in some restaurants but I thought it would be impossible to make them on my own. That’s why I tried to find a good and easy to understand recipe in the internet. After trying out (the first trial was a total disaster…) I finally managed to have my chicken come out of the oven in the way I was ecpecting it (not totally black because I forgot it…). I am quite happy with the result so far. But the only thing that I am not really sure about is the type of spices being used. In the restaurants it tasted different somehow…
