Tawa Chicken Kerala Style (chicken Grilled On Girdle Kerala Style)
Tawa grilled chicken is a simple healthy recipe that uses freshly pounded spices to marinate the chicken. But it is the execution that makes this chicken different and healthy. This chicken is double cooked. It is firstly lightly sauted and then grilled on a girdle. Now this is a technique used in Kerala and I picked it from my dad's head cook. He told me they did this because with running orders putting raw marinated chicken on a girdle and cooking it without burning it is going to burn the chicken and they would not be able to deliver it in 15 minutes. Hence the double cooking process. You cook the chicken with the spices once and then grill it on a tawa so its healthy. There is no sauteing in this recipe. The Himachali version of this recipe is slightly different and is the North Indian version of this dish.
