Whole chicken roast indian style

It's been many times i wanted to do a full chicken roast but never had a courage to do. As thanksgiving is celebrated here each every food stores sold full Turkey or chicken that too with a good discount. The other day i went to a store with my friend and saw whole chicken was on sale. So brought two and gave one to my friend and brought one home. I googled a lot and checked youtube videos for indian version of this roast and found nothing which suites our taste. Then i took few ideas from here and there and made my own stuffing. I baked and at the end grilled a bit too...so i got those black spots on the chicken. We all enjoyed eating this and gave a part of it to my friend too.

Here goes the recipe:


Whole chicken
Salt as per taste
Oil 4 tbsp
Food colour
Lemon 1
Coconut masala 2 tbsp

Clean chicken in and out for couple of times. You can peel the skin if you want to. But i baked with skin. Rub salt generously in and out of the chicken. If possible rub salt under the skin too.

Then rub chicken with lemon juice in and out. And rub 2 tbsp of coconut masala on the top of the chicken.Apply colour and brush the chicken with oil in and out. Let it rest for 1 hour.

For stuffing:-

Baby potatoes 5-6
Coconut masala 5-6 tbsp
Onions 2 sliced
Green chillies 3 sliced
Mint leaves few
Egg 2
Oil 2 tbps
salt to taste

Coconut masala:-

Freshly grated coconut 1/2 cup
Cinnamon 2 small pcs
Cloves 2
Shahi zeera 1/2 tsp
Khus-khus 1/2 tsp
Red chilly powder 1/4 tsp
Elachi 1
Pepper powder 1/4 tsp
Ginger and garlic paste 2 tbsp

Grind the above masala into fine paste.

In pan take oil. Add onions and green chillies. Saute for a while. Add mint leaves and coconut masala. Saute until oil oozes out. Add small baby potatoes (skin peeled). Sprinkle water and cover. Cook until the potatoes are soft. Lastly add two eggs. Mix well and let the curry dry a bit.

Stuff this potato mixture into the chicken. Close the end of the chicken.
                                                  chicken before going into the oven.

Pre-heat oven and bake the chicken for 45 minutes on 175 degree celcius.Take it out from the oven and drain the water collected on the tray. Then bake for another 20 minutes on 200 degree celcius. Again drain the water on the tray.

Grill of 5-8 minutes. Serve hot.
