Salted / Namkeen Chicken

This recipe is from a TV show. This chicken is a dry roast type but salted and taste yummy. This can be had as a side dish or shredded for sandwiches or any filling. This dish is actually made with red meat.  Here I,  have used chicken. If you are using red meat then double the quantity of salt.  

What I, liked about this recipe that it easy and no cutting, chopping or grinding.  You have just everything in the kitchen that is required to make this dish.  It also taste yummy and can be frozen, used whenever required.

1 Kg Chicken - Cut into 8 pieces
1 Teaspoon Salt - slightly heaped
2 Teaspoons Black pepper - crushed
1 Tablespoon Ginger garlic paste
1 Large Onion - cut into four
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Garam masala powder

Marinate the chicken with the salt, black pepper, ginger garlic paste and onion for 15 minutes.

In a large like a flat basin pan add oil spread the chicken in a single layer.   Seal pan and cook on low flame for one hour seal the pan with dough or put a weight on the lid.  Do not add water and do not stir the chicken.  Open pan only after 45 minutes to  an hour, if cooked, switch off the flame. S
prinkle garam masala powder . When cooled  discard onions and serve .  Enjoy this dish as a side dish or a filling for sandwiches, rolls, etc...
