About Palak Chicken Ghee Roast Recipe

Most would agree with me that food cooked in Ghee or Clarified Butter takes the recipe to all together a different level. I came to know about Chicken Ghee Roast for the 1st time in the Show Twist of Taste which gets broadcasted in Fox Traveller Channel and Hosted by MasterChef Judge Vikas Khanna . The chef inspired from Chicken Ghee Roast invented a completely different dish as that’s the concept of the show. Unfortunately, the secret to original recipe was never disclosed in the episode. However, I was bent on making the traditional dish in my kitchen as it looked too tempting to me. I started my search where I always look for Konkan Dishes and Woohoo I found it here . I started making the preparation. Everything was ready – the chicken, the marinade and then finally came the time to roast the Red Chilies for the marinate. I was zapped to find the amount of chilies that go in. My taste buds are not meant to eat chilies. My dreams were shattered. I kept thinking what do I make now since I have been dreaming about this recipe since morning. That’s when I too decided to adapt my recipe and came up with my own version of Chicken Ghee Roast.
