  2. Make the Ghee roast Masala

    • In a large pan over medium heat, add dried red chilies, fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cloves and peppercorns.
    • Roast them on low flame until the spices are extremely aromatic for about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the flame and allow to cool.
    • Once the spices are cooled, add them to a blender along with the garlic and tamarind paste. Add 30 g of water while blending and blend it into a smooth paste.

  3. Combine all ingredients and finish Chicken Ghee Roast

    • In a large pot over medium heat, add the Ghee and heat.  Add curry leaves and fry briefly for about 30 seconds.
    • On a lower heat, add the marinated chicken and cook until the chicken has become firm. The chicken will be firm when the flesh turns opaque and changes color. It should take about 5 minutes.
    • Add the Ghee roast Masala into the pot and mix everything together until it combines well.
    • Cook the chicken in the pan until the Ghee separates out and reaches the surface.  Season with 3 to 5g salt and mix well.
    • Finally, add the jaggery and mix well.
