Mangalore, the coastal town of Karnataka is famous for two things.

Its use of Gold in Marriage and its Food.

The people of this coastal district are famous for introducing some of the excellent and mouth watering dishes. One of the dishes which has gained very wide popularity is “Chicken Ghee Roast”.

Recently i came to know from one of my colleague about a Mangalorean restaurant ‘Anupam’s Coast to Coast’ in Bangalore where this dish is served. But despite having this dish so many times. I was not able to make out the ingredients and its way of preparation.

So finally i decided to ask one of my close friend who is a Mangalorean and she explained me the recipe.
