Chicken Ghee Roast Mangalore Style

Chicken Ghee Roast is a very famous dish of Mangalore. It is served in almost all the restaurants. Chicken Ghee Roast has a strong flavour of ghee because the spices are roasted in ghee. It also has a deep red colour because we are using byadgi chillies or Kashmiri red chillies.

Vegetarians can substitute chicken with Paneer and make Paneer ghee roast. I normally use Both Guntur chillies and Kashmiri chillies to make this Chicken Ghee Roast but this time I used only Kashmiri chillies as I did not have Guntur Chillies.

This Chicken Ghee Roast goes well with Rice, Dosa and Neer Dosa.
