Andhra Style Chicken Ghee Roast is a delicious starter that you can make for a weekend meal or as a starter for your parties.
The spicy version of this roast is balanced by the ghee that’s added and overall with cashew nuts added this dry starter makes an excellent dish for your parties. Amma normally makes it for the weekend special lunch.
As you can see, this was part of the Sunday lunch served with Biryani and gravy. Kids normally eat it as such, while the elders prefer it with the meal. I have plated it as part of the thali anyways.
While there are many versions of dry chicken roasts, I still have so many versions of Amma’s special dishes yet to be covered.
This sinful dry saute is part of the BM#108, Week 4, where I am doing dishes from a state.
