Tawa Chicken is the chicken cooked on a flat pan which we use to make roti's. Tawa Chicken is again a form of dry chicken dish which is the best starter and a treat for our  tongue. Yet again a dish with limited ingredients and also you don't require sophisticated or trendy vessels or pans .

  • Take a whole Chicken and give it few cuts to make it flat or you can cut into 4 pieces so its easy to turn on Tawa.
  • Than apply salt,ginger-garlic paste and yogurt,rub the ingredients well on the body of chicken and into the cuts.Allow the chicken to marinate for 1 hour.

  • Than again flip the Chicken,it must have changed the colour to light brown.At this stage add chopped tomatoes and chili flakes.Cover the chicken and allow it cook for more 10 min so that the tomatoes gets cooked and leaves its juices.
  • Then flip it again ,but at this stage do not cover the lid because now we should make sure the liquid gets dried from the tawa.
  • Now sprinkle the roughly ground cumin -coriander ,flip it one more time so that spices goes down the chicken.Take the gravy from the Tawa and place it on top of the chicken.
  • Than sprinkle fresh coriander leaves,spread the chopped fresh chilies,Turn one more time the Chicken so that the fresh chilies gets roasted .At last add the chopped onions and cover it with bowl and switch off the stove.Onions will get cooked inside since its covered .
