Easy bachelor friendly chicken roast recipe made with simple ingredients. Perfect for beginners. Recipe with video.

This is a very simple chicken roast recipe that is perfect for beginners too. The recipe uses very simple ingredients. Bone-in chicken is preferred for making this recipe as the chicken remains moist and is also flavourful. I always prefer bone-in chicken for south Indian style stir-fry’s and curries. This recipe is from Rockstar, my twitter pal Macchu.

The onions need to be finely chopped for this recipe. The onions will caramelize on frying. This will result in a nice masala coating later on.

The dried chillies and the green chillies are kept whole in this recipe while chilli powder is added for heat. The whole chillies are only for flavour and not for heat. For a brighter looking chicken roast, use a little Kashmiri chilli powder for colour along with regular chilli powder. Kashmiri chilli powder is not very hot but gives a nice bright colour to the chicken roast.

Getting the texture right is the key to this recipe. Saute the chicken until it’s completely dry. I have not added any water while making the chicken roast. The chicken is cooked on a low flame in its own juices and this makes the masalas penetrate well into the meat. The meat gets nicely roasted and is delicious on every single bite.

Easy bachelor friendly chicken roast recipe made with simple ingredients. Perfect for beginners. Recipe with video.

  • Total Time: 30m
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x



2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
5 sprigs curry leaves, chopped (divided)
5 dried gundu chillies
2 cups onions, chopped
3 green chillies, whole
1 teaspoon rock salt
1.5 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1.5 teaspoon red chilli powder
1.5 teaspoon Kashmiri red chilli powder
750 grams chicken, bone-in, small pieces
1 teaspoon ghee
3 sprigs coriander leaves, chopped


Heat coconut oil in a pan and add in the cumin seeds and fennel seeds. Add in the finely chopped curry leaves and the dried chillies. Roast for a few seconds.

Add in the finely chopped onions. Add in the green chillies. Keep the chillies whole. Keeping the chillies whole will not make the chicken roast spicy but will make it flavourful.

Add in the salt and saute till the onions are nice and soft. Add in the ginger garlic paste and saute for a couple of minutes.

Add in the spice powder and saute for a few seconds.

Add in the chicken and mix well to combine. Close the pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes on a low flame. Open the lid and cook for another 10 minutes till the chicken is dry.

Finally add in the ghee, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Mix well.

Chicken roast is ready.
