How to Make Roasted Chicken with Stuffing

  • Heat ghee in a vessel and brown the minced onions first.
  • Then add the bread pieces and fry.
  • Add rest of the minced masala and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Finally add salt, to taste.
  • This is a general stuffing for roasted meat or vegetables.
  • Prepare the whole chicken. Clean and wash it, without cutting its legs and wings. Slice the belly. And clean it thoroughly from inside, to remove all blood and other stains.
  • In a pan, heat ghee, and fry the stuffing, then add plums, mashed potatoes, pepper powder and garam masala powder.
  • When done, fill the inside of the chicken, with the above stuffing and close the opening with stitches of thin thread, so that the stuffing does not come out, while cooking.
  • Fold and tie the legs and wings in the front, and place the chicken in the oven and bake it.
  • Alternative method is to fry it. In a large enough vessel, add ghee and heat it up. Then lace the chicken, and brown it. Constantly baste it, with the hot ghee, with a spoon.
  • When one side is brown, turn it to the other side, and fry it. Do not allow the meat to be burnt. You may have to add more ghee, if there is no fat of the chicken coming out.
  • When the chicken is brown, pour two cups of boiling water and cook.
  • Add salt, spices like cinnamon, cloves and cook, till the meat is well done.
  • Serve the whole chicken at the dining table, and carve out the pieces, and have it with a salad, or a sauce of your liking.
  • You can boil the liver and gizzard of the chicken and make tiny cubes. Add it, while the stuffing is being prepared and include it in the stuffing.
