A great refresher from the monotonous honey glazed chicken roast….. This one is definitely a hit for those X mas get together meals! Its an Indianised and a spicier version of a stuffed chicken…a Royal Treat for you and your family!
Wash and clean the chicken and pat dry.Prepare the marinade by mixing the lemon juice, ginger garlic paste, salt, chilli powder, color and the bud chillies.
Apply the marinate on the chicken thoroughly. Apply it on the insides also. Wrap it in a cling wrap and allow to marinate for atleast 2 hrs preferrably overnight
Prepare the filling by chopping the onions lenghtwise and the potatoes into small cubes. Fry the potatoes till golden. Remove and keep aside. Fry the onion till golden brown, drain and keep aside. Cut the boiled eggs into small pieces. Mix everything
Remove the chicken from the cling wrap. Drain the excess water. Now stuff the chicken with the stuffing mixture. Tie the chicken legs together with the string so that the stuffing does not come out.
Now prepare the veggies by cutting them all roughly. Mix together the oil, kalonji, salt, chilli flakes, italian herbs and apply to the veggies evenly.
Put the chicken in the baking tray and the veggies around it. You can baste the chicken with a little butter.
Roast in the oven at 180 degrees for about 50 mins or till done. Whent he chicken starts to brown just turn it over and cook on the other side till done. The cooking time may vary depending upon the size of the chicken.
Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.

Most of us Ubanites have this new found love for a space that’ll give us some “space”..Literally!
A place outside the boundaries of your home or workplace where you can be alone or with your friends and not be bothered with the hovering staff to take your order, execute and slap a bill and wait for you to empty space. I love my personal space and I’m very protective about it. So when the saturation sets in, ( being a mom to two naughty boys, I need to reset myself very often) I head to a nearby cafe just alone or with my bestie to spend next few hours in peace.
