Garlic Tomato Chicken Roast / Garlic Chicken Roast

This has become my latest favorite..If you are a garlic lover like me, then you will probably go crazy for this. It is so garlicky, tomatoy, spicy, tangy all in one..YUMMY that is the only word i can say for the taste. This dish has a crazy amount of garlic in it, but dont worry, you dont have to peel it. yes you can use garlic with their skins on..And one warning, please dont yell at me seeing the amount of garlic in the dish.

This dish is made by my latest found out technique to make a normal sauted chicken taste like roasted chicken recipe without adding much oil. I am keeping on inventing new dishes with that technique and this is one of that. It was a hit in our home..You have to try it to know the taste of it..

To see more recipes which is cooked using this technique, check out my pepper chicken roast, butter chicken roast, onion chicken roast..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Marinating Time : 30 mins
Cooking Time : 50 to 1 hour
Serves : 4 to 5


Chicken - 3/4 kg
Garlic - 30 cloves (you dont have to peel it)
Tomato - 2 large pureed
Chilli Powder - 1 tblspn or to taste
Garam Masala Powder - 2 tblspn
Turmeric Powder / Manjal Podi - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tblspn + 2 tblspn
Coriander Leaves / Cilantro - 3 tblspn finely chopped


Take all the garlic cloves in a blender and blend them well.

Take chicken in a bowl, add in chilli, garam masala and turmeric powder. Add in the crushed garlic cloves too. Mix that well and let it marinate for 30 mins.

Heat 2 tblspn of oil in a non stick kadai. Add the marinated chicken in hot oil and give it a toss. Cover and cook for around 15 mins. Now the chicken must have leached out lots of water and is half cooked.

Add in the tomato puree and mix well. Cover again and cook for 20 mins or so. Now the chicken must have completely cooked.

Now open the lid and increase the heat. Cook the chicken on a high flame till most of the liquid evaporates. Now drizzle in the 2 tblspn of oil all around the chicken and cook on high heat, keep tossing till you get nice colour on the chicken and the masala has totally stuck onto the chicken.

Throw in lots of coriander leaves and toss well.

Serve chicken with rice or anything you prefer.
