We have all seen a beautifully roasted chargha in Lahori streets. It is one of the finest dishes in the Punjab region. A whole chicken is marinated and then fried. It is usually served with Naan and Chatni.
- Chicken preparation
Buy a whole chicken and make some deep cuts on the breast and thigh. This will help the marination to soak up into the chicken.
- Add some Masala
Add 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste.
1 tsp of vinegar
1/2 tsp of salt
Sprinkle all these things directly on the chicken and give it a mix.
- Spice it up
1 packet of tikka masala OR
1 packet of tandoori masala
Putt these masala into half kg yogurt , mix it, and pour this mixture on the chicken.
Put this marinated chicken in a damp place for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Fry the beauty
After four hours take your chicken out put it in a pan, pour extra masala on top, drizzle some cooking oil, cover the pan and let it cook for at least 30 minutes on medium head. Turn its side after every 5-7 minutes. Cook it until chicken is tender.
Your delicious chargha is ready to serve after 30 minutes. Remove it from the pan. Garnish with some green chilies and fresh coriander . Serve with mint chatni and Enjoy.
