An easier version of the Sunday chicken roast dinner, the stovetop roast chicken with carrots and potatoes is simply perfect!


While a Sunday roast is a popular meal in most countries, the recipe always differs from home to home. Some days we make a stuffed roast, some days we make a simple roast in a kadai, and sometimes we make this version of the East Indian chicken roast recipe with root veggies. It’s almost good enough to add to the Christmas dinner list, with or without the stuffing.

Making the East Indian Roast Chicken with Root Veggies

Start by making a sugar mel or sugar syrup. Caramelize it till it looks nicely brown. Place the chicken in the kadai and brown it on both sides.

Add some oil or ghee (Indian clarified butter) along with potatoes, onions, carrots, crushed garlic and chilies. Cook for 30 minutes on each side on a medium flame and it’s ready to serve.

Garlic, carrot, chilies, potato and onion cut and placed on the cutting board.
