Nadan Kozhi Roast - Country Chicken Roast

Nadan Kozhi Roast - Country Chicken Roast, this recipe is prepared in Kerala style. Actually, my in-laws are from Kerala. So, I get to know few recipes from Kerala Cusine through my mother-in-law and her sisters. This is one such dish. 

Preparation wise, this recipe is very easy to make except the part in cooking the chicken. Nadan chicken generally takes more time to cook. So, in this recipe I just altered that part by pressure cooking the chicken to reduce the cooking time. But this doesn't change the taste. It was as good as cooking on pan.
