Accidentally or deliberately I always add Indian spices and masalas in everything I cook. I love the Indian twist in all that I prepare, may it be a pasta or a soup or salad, etc. This roasted chicken thighs was also marinated with Indian masala. This one is packed with proteins, it has it all the taste a non-veggie foodie would crave for. Simply perfect diet food for lunch or dinner. Here goes the recipe...
Chicken thighs - 4 nos
Butter for basting
For the masala:
Yogurt - 1 tbsp
Kashmiri chilly powder -1 tbsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Aroma cube (tomato flavour) - 1 nos
Salt for taste
Slit 2-3 lines on the chicken using a knife (helps in penetration of masala). Mix all the ingredients except butter. Now coat the chicken pieces with the masala and marinate for 3-4 hours. Preheat the oven at 240degree. Place the marinated chicken in a greased pan (place a aluminium foil paper on the pan, baste that with olive oil). Roast at the same temperature for 15 min. Baste with butter. Now reduce the temperature to 200 degree Celsius and roast for another 25-30 min or till its done. Baste again with butter. Garnish with onions rings, lemon wedges and serve with roti, bread, pita etc.
As a healthy option, Olive oil can be used instead of butter.
