Nutrition: per serving



  • 1 Chicken Whole
  • 50 g Yoghurt
  • 1 tsp Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1 tsp Green Chilli Paste
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri Chilli
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Oil


  • In a bowl add all the marinade ingredients then mix to combine until a smooth paste forms
  • Add the whole chicken and spread the paste all over the chicken then allow to marinate for at least 1 hour – for best results leave to marinate overnight
  • In a large pot add a steamer rack (or wire rack) in the pot then add the hot water ensuring that the hot water doesn’t touch the steamer
  • Tie the chicken legs together using kitchen twine then add on top of the steamer – the chicken should not be in contact with the water
  • Cover and allow to steam cook for 45 minutes then set aside for 10 minutes to allow it to cool down
  • In the meanwhile, heat up a deep fryer until hot then add the cooled down chicken and fry for 5-6 minutes until crispy
  • Serve with roasted potatoes and enjoy!
