    Roast Chicken with Herb Garlic Butter

    Roast Chicken with Herb Garlic Butter
    4 pounds chicken
    1 lemon with small "x" cut into side
    1/2 stick butter, room temp
    3 cloves garlic, peeled and fine chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil (or 2 tsp dried)
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon (1 tsp dried)
    1 cup dry white wine

    Preheat oven to 450ºF.

    Place chicken breast side up in roasting pan.

    Carve a small "x" thru lemon's peel, and stuff into cavity.

    In small bowl, mix butter, garlic, basil, tarragon and pepper until smooth.

    Using fingers, separate and loosen breast skin from breast. Spread 1 1/2 tbl. flavored butter mix under breast skin, rubbing evenly over entire breast. Spread remaining butter all over chicken skin, top and button.

    Add 1/2 c. of wine to pan. Roast chicken for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temp to 325ºF.

    Continue roasting until juices run clear yellow and not pink when an inner thigh is pierced, about 45 minutes longer.

    Baste chicken every 15 minutes with wine and juices in bottom of pan, adding more wine if pan seems dry. remove chicken to cutting board and let sit, loosely covered with foil for 10-15 minutes. Discard excess fat from roasting pan and bring juices to simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 3-5 minutes and season to taste.

    Carve the chicken and serve topped with warm pan juices.

    Easy Prawn Curry

    Hi everyone,

    Easy prawns curry is the recipe which I had posted earlier on Bawarchi website. It was well appreciated (the credit of course goes to my mom) and therefore would like to share this recipe with the ladies at IL Hope you enjoy it

    • 1 cup medium prawns (remove the shells & devien the prawns)
    • 1-2 tsp cumin+black pepper powder (or as per taste) (Grind 1 tbsp each of full cumin seeds + black pepper together, you can always store the extra powder)
    • 3-4 medium brinjals (each cut into 4 long pcs)
    • few curry leaves
    • 2 green chillies slit (optional)
    • 1 big size onion cut finely
    • 1 tbsp ginger + garlic paste

    • 2 medium tomatoes cut finely
    • 1 tsp red chillie powder
    • 1 tbsp corriander powder
    • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
    • 1 cup coconut milk ( I use ready coconut milk powder about 3-4 tbsp dissolved in 1 cup warm water)
    • 1 small lemon size tamarind soaked in 1/2 small cup water
    • 4-5 tbsp Oil for frying
    • Salt to taste
    1. Wash the prawns well and keep aside (I usually rub little salt and then wash it with water to remove the fishy smell)
    2. In a vessel make the oil hot , and fry the brinjal on high fire till it is slightly brown, keep aside to be used later.
    3. In the same oil add curry leaves +slit green chillies, then add the onions fry till they turn pink
    4. Add ginger+garlic paste, fry for sometime
    5. Add the finely cut tomatoes and fry for 3 minutes or till tomato is done
    6. Now add the grinded cumin+pepper powder, red chillie powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, fry well till the masala is cooked.
    7. Now add the prawns and fry for 5 minutes by occassionaly stirring it.
    8. Add the cocunut milk, and cook till it boils
    9. Now add the tamarind pulp and salt to taste , cook on a slow gas with the vessel covered, cook till the prawns is cooked .
    10. Now add the fried brinjal to the curry and cook for another 3 -4 minutes.
    11. To make this dish more spicy you can add more red chillie powder/green chillies.
    12. Delicious prawns curry is ready.
    13. Serve it with rice.

    tomato chicken

    hello malar,
    thanks for u tried the recipe. When ur using broiler chicken less amount of water is enough for it will leave out some water while cooking. As for this tomato chicken most probably you don't need to add water coz we've marinated it with tomato. So for cautious sake (adi pudikama irukarathuku) you can just add a half cup of water for 1/2 kg chicken and better cook it in slow flame. All the bests for ur second try.
