Ingredients

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • 5 - Kashmiri chillies
  • 3 - Green chillies, de-seeded

How to Make Goan Chicken Cafreal

  • Rub the ground paste, salt and lime juice over the chicken (also inside if whole).
  • Cover and leave overnight in the fridge to marinate.
  • Heat oven to 325 degree Celsius.
  • Place the chicken on a roasting tray and cover with foil (as this will leave the chicken moist when done and the spices will not burn).
  • For a 2 kg chicken, cook for about 2 hrs
  • Baste several times during cooking.
  • For the last 15 minutes of cooking, remove the foil.
  • Now remove the chicken from the tray and leave to rest.
  • For the gravy, collect the pan juices (don't skim off the fat) and make a normal gravy.
