Easy to prepare, Zero Oil Chicken Roast can be served as an appetizer or side-dish.
Do you remember your first blog post? I do and that was Chicken Sarka. It was one afternoon when I was trying to figure out what I could prepare for lunch, before leaving for work. I came across this easy-peasy recipe in one of the popular Malayalam magazines – Vanitha. I was skeptical to try it out because duh! There was no oil to be used and it hardly took some spice powders and chicken to prepare this recipe. I was so elated when it turned out to be good that I decided to share my happiness with the world.
Thus, I began my blog called Tale of Two Tomatoes which has now transformed and redeemed itself to Kohl Eyed Capers. It is now a lifestyle blog and I knew I needed a separate space for my love for food. That’s how Something’s Cooking was born.
I started blogging to record the recipes I tried in my kitchen. I had been married only for a few months and I was all excited to cook different cuisines. The energy, fever, zeal, and fieriness is still the same, if not more. Though a monthly blogging challenge like the A to Z Challenge is mighty exhausting, I still somehow prevail till the end and I hope I have done justice this year too by putting forth some incredible Kerala dishes.
Recipe for Zero Oil Chicken Roast
I tried this recipe again last day but this time, I was cooking it for my parents. Through the course of this one month, you’d have understood that they are amazing cooks and therefore, my biggest critics. So, when Dad gave me a thumbs up for this dish, I was over the moon.
Chicken Sarka is an easy dish to prepare. This is made on the stovetop and not in a microwave oven or air fryer.
Mix together chicken pieces, red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, cumin powder, salt and curry leaves. In a pan, add half a cup of water and add the chicken pieces with spice powders. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes. That’s it. Done.Print
That’s all for now!
Thank you very much for your love and support throughout this month. I really couldn’t have done this without you. Stay tuned for I ain’t going anywhere. I will be back again with an amazing recipe sometime later this week. Cheers!
My theme for the A to Z Challenge this year is ’26 Kerala Dishes that have my heart’, where I would share a multitude of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes from the Spice Capital of the World- Kerala!
