Mangalorean Chicken Ghee Roast is an absolute favourite at home. The child can eat it three times a day for months without asking for “what else”. That alone makes it a winner in my view!
Chicken Ghee Roast was the first Mangalorean dish I fell in love with and it has been a long love affair since then. The beauty of Mangalorean food is in its simplicity yet a fantastic depth of flavour.
I know the idea of Ghee roast is very daunting especially when we look at the amount of ghee that goes into it’s making. But if there is one thing that you need to know about this dish it is “Do not skim on ghee”. Make it less but really don’t say, let me add lesser ghee to it. The dish needs that ghee floating and I swear if someone bottles that ghee and sells I will buy. It is so full of flavour, whether you take a slice of bread to wipe it off the plate or add some rice to finish every drop of it. But don’t let it go waste, the ghosts of ghee roast loving people will come and hound you if you do.
