Ghee Roast

The ever changing food revolution bears glad tidings for us ghee lovers. With these new diets proclaiming that it is actually good to cook with ghee, we can proudly brandish our traditional ghee saturated dishes, namely the Mangalorean Ghee Roast.

Ghee Roast, as you may have surmised from the name is essentially a chicken or seafood dish cooked with various spices in ghee. The aroma is enough to make ones mouth water.

While I would love to attribute the deliciousness to the ghee alone, the real flavour comes from the masala, which is a spicy combination of chillies, pepper, coriander, cumin, fenugreek seeds, garlic and tamarind ground together to a fine paste.

You can find the recipe here Mangalorean Ghee Roast 

Chicken Ghee Roast

Keep in mind

The masala should be ground with a little water

If you are cooking chicken, make sure to take your time roasting it on the pan till the meat is well done and there is no pink on the bone.

Curry leaves are key to enhancing the flavour of your dish. It really is a must have.
