This Chicken Roast recipe is an easy breezy one where no spices i.e. garam masalas are used. It's made just by using very few ingredients. 

              One more interesting point in this recipe is no hours-long marination is required. We can just make it in very short time. This recipe is very useful when you want to relish your guests or family members with a crunchy n yummy chicken starter and that too in a very short time.

      Now let us proceed with the making of Chicken Roast.....

1. Chicken - 250 gms (Boneless and cut into small pieces i.e. to the size of small paneer cubes)
2. Cashew nuts - 10 (Slit vertically to half)
3. Curry Leaves - 10 to 15
4. Green Chillies - 5 (slit vertically to half)
5. Onion - 1 (chopped very finely)
6. Spring Onion Leaves - 3 to 4 strands (chopped finely)
7. Pudhina Leaves - 5 to 6
8. Lemon Juice - 1 n 1/2 tsps
9. Salt - To taste
10. Red Chilli Powder - 3 tsps
11. Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
12. Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
13. Oil - 3 to 4 tbsps

1. First marinate the boneless small chicken pieces with salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and gg paste
2. Set aside for 20 to 30 mins
3. Heat oil in a pan, add cashew nuts and fry nicely
4. Once cashews are fried, take them out and drain on a tissue paper
5. Now fry green chillies and curry leaves
6. Once these are fried nicely take them out and drain on tissue paper
7. In the same oil add chopped onion pieces, pudhina leaves and once the onion pieces turn golden brown, add marinated chicken and fry till it turns light blackish i.e. the roasted effect and the chicken is nicely cooked from within
8. Do not cover the pan with lid while frying the chicken. If you do so, the chicken instead of becoming crispy will become soft and moist
9. Once the chicken is fried nicely, add chopped spring onion leaves and toss for few seconds
10. Now dish out and add lemon juice, garnish with already fried cashews, curry leaves and green chillies
11. Also garnish using finely chopped coriander and onion roundels
12. Chicken Roast is ready. Serve it hot, it will be so amazing, you can't refrain yourself any second more from tasting the yummy and crunchy chicken roast.
