Chicken Ghee Roast

This is my 4 th post under BM#27 under seasonal. You must have already seen & tried my Prawn Ghee Roast Recipe. I also have Chicken Ghee roast(Chicken cooked in Clarified butter & chilli paste) recipe in which I have used masala powders & made. Today I made this the traditional way. The recipe is same as Prawn Ghee roast.  Since this is a spicy dish its perfect during winters. I bet you will start sweating while eating this spicy dish & really yummy one. Well this is so tasty that you can have this any day of the year:). Today my hubbys school friends are visiting home & thats why I have made this dish. This is how I made it...
