Pepper Chicken Roast

Print version of Pepper Chicken Roast

Today’s chicken roast recipe is a huge hit at my home as well as with friends. Makes for a wonderful starter or side dish with rotis. I found this recipe at Varsha’s blog which is home to authentic Kerala style non-vegetarian fare that I have bookmarked to try. The first recipe to try from her blog is Pepper Chicken Roast. I have already made it twice and will be a regular chicken dish at home. I more or less followed the recipe to the ‘T’ adjusting the quantities of spices used. Thank you, Varsha for sharing with us a wonderful lip-smackingly good chicken roast recipe.

    extremely inviting! will try soon

  • sarita

    Hi Sailu

    Recipe looks good. I guess 1 kg chicken is the full chicken. Will it taste as well with 1 kg boneless. Or only chicken drum or chicken thighs. chicken is more tasty with the bones?

    thanks

    sarita

    Chicken with bones is best suited for this recipe, Sarita. Adjust spices according to quantity of chicken.

    Sailu,

    A restaurant in my native served ‘Chicken liver Pepper fry’ which tasted awesome. Your recipe reminded me of that. Can I substitute chicken pieces with chicken liver pieces and churn out this dish? Please advise.

    Yes, you can. I haven’t tried it though.

    Hi

    Is there an alternate to Coconut or is coconut a must?

    You can omit coconut but it definitely enhances the flavor.

  • J

    Fresh coconut.

    Cooked it today and it was quite nice. We had it with kulchas. I squeezed half a lime on it, and next time would like to put half of cup of water to make some masala to eat with roti.

    Incidentally, your brownie recipe is my absolute favourite :)

    Hi– can we use dessicated coconut with this recipe? Thanks.

      I have not tried dessicated coconut for this recipe. If you have used it, do let me know the results.

    Hi– sorry, another question. In the ingredients it talks about green chillies, but unless I’m mistaken I don’t think the green chillies appear in your directions.

    Incidently I’m in the middle of cooking this right now and am using dessicated coconut. Fingers crossed!

      You can add green chilies at the time of sauteing the onions and ginger garlic paste. I have not tried dried coconut powder. Do let me know the results.

    Hi– Just to let you know that the recipe turned out fine with dessicated coconut. I hadn’t gotten your response in time, and so my chicken was lacking green chillies. For my tastes they were lacking, but I cooked for farangs and so the toned-down spice level was perfect for them.
