- A few cloves, bay leaves & cardamom
- 20 Garlic cloves

- Marinate the chicken pieces with salt, pepper and paprika for 30 mins.
- In a flat pan, add the ghee and let it heat. Place the chicken pieces and fry them in high flame.
- Once the chicken is roasted well on both sides, take them out and let it drain the excess oil.
- In the same pan, add the clove, bay leaves & cardamom and let it sputter.
