Chicken ghee roast

This is one of the most famous chicken dishes of Mangalore  and one of my favourite.  As the name suggests it is prepared in pure Ghee and any substitute for ghee will spoil the dish.  Its very spicy and rich in calories.  I learned this dish from My Roopa Aunty who used to prepare this  better than any one.  I have made little changes because the Baffat Powder is not available in Kerala
