This recipe has more sway to the Thai marinades.I baked it on a banana leaf ,which is
Asian so, this is to be categorised as a fusion recipe.I did not bake till crisp,as i wanted it
to be like that.It had the taste of chicken palandy (srilankan dish).You could make it
crispier if you like.Now for the recipe..
4-5 chicken breasts
1 inch piece ginger
7-8 cloves peeled garlic
10-15 red chillies /2 tblsp.chilli paste
juice of 1 lime
2-3 lime leaves
1 inch piece turmeric root /1/2 tsp.turmeric
1 tblsp honey
3 tblsp.peanuts. (coarsely ground)
2 tsp.tabasco sauce/oyster sauce
1 tsp.tomato sauce.
slices of onion
banana leaf (optional)
Butter or oil .
Grind the bold listed,mix with other ingredients,oil, except onion and marinade the
chicken for minimum 30 minutes.Place the banana leaf on a tray .Arrange the onions on
the leaf and place the chicken on the onions.Bake in a hot oven 200-220 degrees for 30-40
minutes.Remove the chicken ,and transfer to another serving tray.Thicken the leftover
gravy at the bottom with onions and pour over the chicken and serve.
Note:When you arrange the onions sprinkle a little salt,a little oil,and a sprinkle of garam masala on the onions ,before you lay the chicken .
The same recipe could be grilled or shallow fried.
