Ghee Roast Chicken – Indian Twist which is Healthy

There is no denying the fact that chicken is one of the best lean sources of protein. A source which is traditionally low on calories and filled with a lot of good things. If you are on a weight loss journey or on a muscle gain journey, chicken if my go-to source of protein other than eggs of course.

Ghee Roast Chicken

Usually, a dietician would recommend having boiled chicken. But hey having boiled chicken warrants that one has a strong determination to gulp down that stinky piece sans any taste whatsoever. At least I could never bring myself to eat that. So I went figuring out what was the reason for the additional calories in our usual chicken curry. The answer is simple

  6. Turmeric powder (half a teaspoon)
  7. Garam Masala or chicken masala (optional)
