Chicken Chukka (Pan Roasted Chicken ) With Nutritional Facts - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Chicken chukka is one of my favorite, the chicken is roasted with spices making it aromatic and full of flavors. It is an traditional recipe from Tamil Nadu, a southern state in India.
This recipe is usually prepared with chicken with bones on, but you could also use the same method with boneless chicken. I cut the whole chicken into small pieces.
I used about one pound of chicken. The chicken is first marinated with the required salt and a pinch of turmeric.
