Chicken Roast

Posted by Annita on November 1, 2006

Another family favourite from my amma’s recipe collection,this is like a must served side dish in most of our family get togethers and other festive occasions.Though its my favorite too,I don’t cook it so often,as it is time consuming and require lot of deep frying.

    Hi Annita,
    Look like a tasty chicken dish. I guess this will also work if we substitute chicken with mutton or beef. So the final dish will be somewhat dry right? The picture looks like so.

    Wow! Chicken and vegetables together in a pan sounds good and different too. Will sure try it out. Oh BTw, I didn’t know that,in India, they use worschester sauce for the regular house-hold cooking. My mom cooks only very old traditional dishes (vegetarian and non-vegetarian)…so many of yours and other Keralian bloggers’ recipes are quite new to me. Anyways, thanks for sharing this recipe Annita. :)

    This is a yummy recipe. I will definetely try it soon. But my suggestion is to not use dalda as it is a form of hydrogenated vegetable oil which is very bad for health.
