14.Take the juice in the tray and stir to get the brown bits in the bottom of the pan and pour it over the chicken before serving.
15.Serve it with Jasmine steamed rice or roasted cabbage.

If the chicken is large it takes more time to roast. So keep in the oven till done.

The curry powder can be made by mixing turmeric, paprika, coriander, cumin, etc. It is easier if bought from the market as it would contain all the necessary ingredients.

While rubbing the paste over the chicken, rubber gloves can be used as the paste is spicy, also it can get messy. So the rubber gloves makes it easy to clean up.
