The best part is that it is so so simple. A quick and easy recipe. It was the master piece of Mamma - my paternal grandmom. And everybody who has tasted it has fell in love with it! :) It's a must try! :) My bro seems to be the world's biggest fan of it! He sniffs around the whole house whenever we make it for dinner and he has an early dinner that day :P
So here's our family's treasured recipe :) and I have no idea why I delayed posting it for so long! :P
Baked Chicken with pan fried potatoes, boiled veggies and brown sauce
Whole chicken with skin - 1 kg ( Can cut them into 8 pieces and use them as well )
Ginger paste -1 tbsp
Pepper powder-2 tsp
Soya sauce-3 tbsp
Salt- to taste ( but be careful since soya sauce is salty)
Marinate the chicken with the above ingredients and leave it aside for 2 hours.
Bake at 180 degrees for 1 hour turning the chicken twice in between and pouring the sauce which forms over it.
Water- 1 cup
Pepper -to taste
Once the chicken is baked, there will be a lot of gravy inside the baking dish.
Pour it into a sauce pan and heat it. Add cornflour diluted in water to the gravy.
Bring to a boil. Check for seasoning.
Pour it into a sauce boat & serve hot with chicken.
Boiled veggies like peas, cauliflower,tomatoes.
Boiled , halved and pan fried potatoes.
Onions cut into rings and sauteed.
Garlic bread or white bread.
I think I'll show y'all some pics now :)
Everytime we go visiting our relatives ( strewn all across S.India :P ) Amma ends up baking this :) It is every body's favourite now! :)
So ppl , try this at home and I'm sure you will like it!
P.S. Appan says Amma always bribes him with this dish - Amma has this habit of forgetting things especially on the days when she bake this. It will be ' green peas' in the begining and Appan will be excited & happy to go out and get it only BECAUSE he loves this dish. And once he is back she will say O! There's no bread too!!! AGAIN he will go and get it! And THEN O!no! no potatoes! :P
I also have to mention Appan never goes grocery shopping EXCEPT for this :D
